Season 2013

Stories I Want to Tell You in Person

// Will fortune favour the psychic?


For more than a decade, playwright Lally Katz has been one of Australia’s foremost fabulists, trekking off to the furthest coasts of the imagination and returning with her findings. Now she introduces to the stage one of her most unexpected subjects: herself. She might be alone on the stage but she’s far from lonely, bringing with her a cast of characters — from fortune tellers to mystics to Mississippi Evangelicals — encountered on the quest to cure her curses. Known for delving into fantasy, this writer proves art imitates life.

Lally’s story is too honest to be true, too outrageously wonderful to be made up and too marvellous to dare miss.


★★★★ All the time it is funny. Wildly, fall-about funny.
