EVERY LOVELY TERRIBLE THING

15 - 25 JUNE 2022

Welcome to the Coleman household – where crisis follows disaster after catastrophe.

Widowed matriarch and ‘retired grandmother’ Jerica dreams of selling her dilapidated home and getting away from her family. Grandson Coop avoids talking about his newly diagnosed medical condition by courting the sexually fluid handyman tasked with repairing Jerica’s house. His conservative father Charles prepares to run for a safe Liberal seat, dragging everyone along for the ugly ride, while his wife Phoebe doesn’t know what she wants anymore, except that it’s probably not Charles.

And then Britta – Jerica’s estranged daughter, Charles’ twin sister and Phoebe’s former best friend – walks through the door and demands to be heard.

A new Australian play exploring the lives of six characters across three generations of one family, EVERY LOVELY TERRIBLE THING embraces the chaos of modern life to examine why families stay together... and what happens when they can’t.
