Belvoir St Theatre presents
Tell Me I'm Here

20 Aug 2022 to 25 Sep 2022

The life-changing memoir, now a breathtaking Belvoir play.

Since its publication thirty years ago, Anne Deveson’s family memoir Tell Me I’m Here has become a classic. And now, in a superb adaptation, it comes to the Belvoir stage.

Anne’s life – the familiar juggle of marriage, career, emotions, chaos – is thrown off-balance when her son Jonathan begins speaking oddly, standing strangely, flashing into irrationality and rage. Is it just a phase, part of growing up? The years pass, and it’s clear, Anne’s son has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. But putting a name to it is one thing – getting attention, getting help is another. Even the strongest families, the most steadfast parents, buckle under such stress.

Heart-rending, exquisitely touching, a play which speaks things which normally aren’t spoken. A play about getting on with life, before it’s too late.

Many of you have read Anne’s unforgettable memoir of her son Jonathan. Veronica’s written a superb adaptation, a portrait of a family which knows joy and death intimately. Directed by the magnificent Leticia Cáceres (The Drover’s Wife, Barbara and the Camp Dogs), it’s going to be a highlight. – Eamon

Tell Me I’m Here is the proud recipient of the Blake Beckett Trust Award
