A Little Life – Adelaide Festival
The gripping narrative tracks the deeply intertwined lives of four men over a period of more than 30 years – there’s actor Willem, visual artist JB, architect Malcolm and Jude, a lawyer with a past shrouded in mystery. Tightly bound together by their close friendship, they grapple with the influence of Jude’s traumatic history on their lives. But how do you help someone who doesn’t want to be helped?
Celebrated from Amsterdam to New York, most recently at the Edinburgh International Festival, A Little Life interrogates the interplay between past and present, friendship and desire, care and harm with poignancy and precision. It’s a timeless story of a man haunted by his history.
With compelling storytelling and shattering performances, this production breathes life into one of the most impressive and moving literary works of the past decade.
