It’s My Party (And I’ll Die If I Want To)

Gruff, well ordered, quintessentially Aussie family man Ron is convinced he is dying. In a magnanimous gesture of loving finality, he hosts a party, giving his wife and children the chance to spend a few last quality moments as a family. As the minutes tick away, Ron’s party schedule unravels to reveal a dysfunctional family unit that is both outlandishly bizarre and utterly recognisable.

From the writer that brought you the hugely successful comedy Secret Bridesmaids’ Business, Elizabeth Coleman’s deliciously funny and sweetly dark play It’s My Party (And I’ll Die If I Want To) is a tale of anxiety, absurdity and occasional terror. Like all great comedies, there is laughter… but the elbow jabbing at your ribs is that little bit sharper than expected.

Helpmann Award winner Henri Szeps (Mother and Son) stars alongside Green Room Award winner Robyn Arthur (The Boy from Oz) in one show only at RPAC, Cleveland.
