An intimate, powerful and deeply personal story, performed by one of Australia’s finest actors.

Described by the New York Times as “thrilling and engaging - universal, profound... and uplifting”, Joan Didion’s celebrated memoir is brought to life by Green Room Award-winning actor Jillian Murray in a much lauded solo performance.

This highly personal account of loss through the lens of hope unpacks a surreal and overwhelming period in Didion’s life as she faces the sudden loss of her husband John, and later her daughter Quintana.

Deeply moving, sometimes funny and ultimately joyful, this is one woman’s story of her journey to find acceptance, and the lessons learnt in letting go.

The Year of Magical Thinking enjoyed a critically-acclaimed premiere season at Melbourne’s FortyFiveDownstairs in 2019 that had audiences clamouring to see it.

A must-see for fans of great drama.
