PRESENTED BY MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL

The internationally acclaimed story comes of age on stage.

Édouard Louis was put on the world map at just 21 with this devastating true account of growing up gay and poor in rural France. The perpetual grey weather that hung over Eddy met its human counterparts in his alcoholic father, miserable mother, brooding halfbrother and a school culture of bullying, homophobia and misogyny. Eddy’s only option: to find a way out.

This adaptation of Louis’ moving memoir is anything but deflating, however, mustering a theatrical and televisual arsenal to reclaim the joie de vivre every outsider deserves.

Often manifesting a mischievous irreverence towards theatre conventions and tapping a profound vein of empathy, The End of Eddy draws out the universal themes inherent in this stunning autobiography to create something more. We know you’ll feel it too.
