UPSTAIRS THEATRE

 

By Peter Carey Adapted for the stage by Tom Wright Director Matthew Lutton

 

ABOUT

Harry Joy is the blessed Australian – a childhood of mystical innocence, a home stuffed with love, he brings a smile to all he meets. Then, one warm afternoon on the front lawn, he dies. It’s only for a few minutes – he’s revived. But the world he wakes to is changed; his wife, children and friends all now seem avaricious monsters. And so it dawns on Harry Joy: he hasn’t survived his heart attack at all. He is in Hell.

 

Enter Honey Barbara, a hippy from the rainforest, wise to the ways of the big city. She and Harry melt back into the verdant bush, where their children tell a story of a Paradise Found.

 

Peter Carey’s classic novel performed by a terrific ensemble cast. Entertaining and a little bit epic, it might just offer a vision of hope…

 

A co-production with Malthouse Theatre
