Come Away With Me to the End of the World

It is a relief to feel so free, open-mouthed and childlike in the theatre. Herald Sun
Surprising and beautifully executed. The Australian
Come Away With Me to the End of the World is a quietly humorous meditation on life and death. The audience watches as three performers shape and reshapes their physical and emotional selves, confronting the space between their actual lives and their dreamed selves. This self-imposed quest takes them through shifting landscapes and climates, snow-topped mountain peaks and erupting volcanoes to a final meeting with Greek music legend Demis Roussos on the day before his death.
Come Away With Me to the End of the World asks questions about how we live and how we want to live as we brush up against our own mortality.
First produced by Malthouse Theatre and developed with the assistance of the National Theatre Studio.
