What's On

La Mama


Seven actors take us on a journey that attests to the enduring power of hope. In this honest and moving new play, souls are bared in a potent piece of Verbatim Theatre, which offers fascinating insights into the people whose portraits make up The Hope Song. These stories help us to understand something powerful not only about the seven, but also about ourselves – that in so many ways they are us.

Following its recent sold-out premier season on the Surf Coast, this sensitive, engaging theatre production is proudly brought to you by the APA Ensemble in partnership with SANE Australia.

Together, under the directors’ sure guidance, these performers delivered a piece of theatre that was at times enlightening, insightful, moving, uplifting and funny. Deeply human and painfully honest. It made excellent, absorbing theatre that’s highly recommended
