Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam is an evocative, haunting, moving tale about loss and familial relationships, a husband and wife, parents and children, brother and sister.

What would you do for your children? This is a haunting tale about families, the love and bond between a parent and a child. Which way does the moral compass turn?

An evocative, haunting, moving tale about loss and familial relationships, a husband and wife, parents and children, brother and sister. It explores the nature of an ideal family, and their quest to define their lives through each other, isolating themselves from the outside world. The play is rumination on a kind of suffocating love.

Based on the book by acclaimed Australian author Peter Goldsworthy, this World Premiere production is a powerful reminder of the human condition and what we do for love and loss.
