Have You Met My Grief?

★★★★ "Strong and Courageous"  P Wilson, Glam Adelaide
"A warming and honest examination of grief" K Stefanoff, Glam Adelaide.
Debut Award Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival 2023
 
Adapted from her book of the same name, ‘Have You Met My Grief?' discusses how grief can show up in our lives. After an unimaginable loss, Atkinson found herself with a new companion; grief. Exploring the ups and downs of life, its light and shade, the heartwarming and heartbreaking, we learn grief and humour can coexist, there is beauty, connection and love in even the harshest of realities. Compelling storytelling and popular songs from Adele, Coldplay, Carole King and Pink, weave a journey of life, love, loss, and the lessons. It's unpredictable, vulnerable and at times, comical, just like life....and grief!
