Happy-Go-Wrong

FRIDAY 17 SEPTEMBER - 7:30PM

Powerhouse performer Andi Snelling is in the fight of her life in this award-winning physical theatre odyssey.

With five awards, standing ovations and multiple sold-out seasons, this “highlight of the year” (The Age) is simply unmissable.

After a tick bite, Andi is plunged into dangerously ill health. Little does she know, she is about to orchestrate her own rescue in a life-affirming performance that blends clowning, storytelling and roller skates.

Through a profound celebration of mortality and resilience, this rollercoaster show aligns the personal with the universal and makes visible the invisible, as Andi shares her ongoing plight with unflinching honesty and gut-punching comedy. The show’s message of hope amidst uncertainty is even more relevant now than ever.

“Happy-Go-Wrong is ultimately a celebration of being alive. I don’t shy away from the dark, but I do so in wonderfully playful and grotesque ways. I care a lot about my audience so I promise you’re in good hands. Just come along and find out!"
