The Very Last List of Vivian Walker
Based on the acclaimed Banjo prize short-listed novel, The Very Last List of Vivian Walker, this production brings together a performance of excerpts from the novel, with songs from the books original soundtrack woven though the performance.
This is a darkly funny and moving depiction of a woman who is dying but still has a list of jobs to do, such as cleaning the fridge, organising her own funeral and updating her husband and son’s to-do lists. It will make you snort tea out your nose with laughter, ugly cry, and want to embrace humanity in all it’s clumsiness, selfishness, beauty and awkwardness.

Music performed by author/singer/songwriter Megan Albany and Marc Mittag.
