When I Was Five

by Jeff Baron

Director: Brett Turner

Season dates: 20 April to 6 May 2017

A humorous, emotional journey of discovery and self acceptance.  Will, a screenwriter in his 30s, 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 the way this affected him as a boy, and unlocks barriers that help him see a better future.

​From the author of the acclaimed Visiting Mr Green, an Australian premiere.


Sunday 12 February from 12pm;   Monday 13 February from 7.30 pm

WILL: mid-late 30’s

Screenwriter, can come across as neurotic and self obsessed. Not good with confrontation. Has difficulty forming relationships with others

ELLEN: 50s

Therapist. Comes across as cool, collected, self assured – almost cold – but has her own demons to contend with.
