Wellness Guru, Juniper, is ready to unveil her cancer and COVID curing Miracle Tonic at her annual Soul Convergence. There’s only one problem – Instafamous cancer-patient Maha (who stopped chemotherapy to follow Juniper’s wellness program) dies onsite. With Juniper’s world set to unravel, she solicits advice from her team of ‘experts’. Together, they go to extreme lengths to hide the truth from her followers. She might just get away with it – except that journalist Mindy Flores is asking too many questions about Maha's treatment. This is when things start to get a little… complicated.

This darkly satirical, spectacle-filled comedy is a timely examination of the parasitic world of wellness.

Rebooted after a 2020 season cancellation due to VIC Lockdown, Theatre Works now proudly welcomes audiences back to the venue with this engaging and lively premiere season.

This season is proudly supported by Theatre Works, the National Institute of Dramatic Art and the City of Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund
