Avalanche: A Love Story

29 Aug 2019 to 14 Sep 2019


Sydney Theatre Company presents
A Barbican London and Fertility Fest production
By Julia Leigh

World premiere

A compelling true story

Acclaimed Sydney novelist Julia Leigh is 38 years old and deeply in love with her new husband. Like countless other couples around the country, they want to have a child together and they make an appointment at an IVF clinic. They are full of hope and shared commitment. So begins this true story.

Avalanche is Julia Leigh’s riveting, emotionally honest and exceptionally moving account of a profound and widespread experience. She lays bare the highs and the lows, the pull of maternal yearning, the toll on a relationship, and the daily oscillation between hope and doubt. It’s a story we can all relate to – about the dreams we have for ourselves, the hopes we have for our futures and the goals we have for our families.

Direct from London, this international co-production with the Barbican Centre sees Leigh adapt her memoir for the stage. Sydney-born director Anne-Louise Sarks has been making waves in Europe and this production brings her back to her hometown for her first work with STC. These are artists at the top of their game, sharing a raw and insightful look at a universal tale.

Avalanche: A Love Story was co-commissioned by Barbican London, Fertility Fest and Sydney Theatre Company.
