When I Was Five

by Jeff Baron
20 April - 6 May 2017

Director: Brett Turner

Assistant Director: Adrian Valenta

Production Coordinator: Robert Harsley

From the acclaimed author and the same directing team of Visiting Mr. Green  (VDL awarded Best Production 2015) comes another warm, humorous, emotional journey of discovery and self-acceptance.


Will, a screenwriter in his 30's goes to see Ellen, a slightly unconventional therapist, to figure out why he's never had a successful relationship.  She helps him realise that he's never really dealt with a childhood tragedy.  Using a creative technique, she shows Will (and us) the way this affected him as a boy, which unlocks barriers and helps him see a better future.

An Australian Premiere.
