About The Year of Magical Thinking

Following the continuing success of L’amante anglaise, Green Room Award winners Jillian Murray and Laurence Strangio re-join forces to present Joan Didion’s remarkable memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking – a highly personal account of loss through the lens of hope.

Adapted by Didion from her award-winning memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking unpacks a surreal and overwhelming time in her life, as she faces the loss of her husband John, and a year later, her daughter Quintana. It’s a play about language, the tension between what is said and what is not said.

★★★★1/2 ‘Jillian Murray inhabits Joan Didion with absolute conviction…it is as grand as theatre can be.’ ArtsHub

‘There is care and craft in abundance and it was a privilege to watch.’ Australian Arts Review
