Out of the Blue

Life can be tough in the bush especially when you lose a mate to suicide

Written by: Stig Wemyss abd presented by the widely acclaimed Health Play

“Out of the Blue” is set in a hotel bar, where locals are gathered to pay tribute to one of their mates that they have lost to suicide. The play is both funny and sad but very relevant today, especially in regional and rural areas where the threat of suicide is a concern to many communities.

The play will provide the audience with a better understanding/education of depression and suicide and will give people the opportunity to speak openly about the topic during the panel discussion following the play. Panel members will be made up of relevant health professionals within the local area. Community members will have the chance to ask and have their questions answered.

The focus of the play is to generate discussion and bring out the hidden, and often stigmatised issues relating to mental health and suicide. It is hoped the play will generate interest in finding out more about suicide, how to prevent it and how people can assist those affected. It stars many well-known stage and television actors, Chris Bunworth, Brett Swain, Matthew King, Margot Knight, Glenn van Oosterom, who have committed themselves to this vital cause. Join them in fighting what is fast becoming a national crisis.
