Growing Up and Other Disasters: Cumming and Barr

IN CONVERSATION WITH PAOLA TOTARO

Roslyn Packer Theatre (formerly Sydney Theatre)
22 Hickson Road
Walsh Bay


As boys growing up in Britain, both Alan Cumming (Not My Father’s Son) and Damian Barr (Maggie and Me) experienced the kind of childhoods no one would wish for. Each in his own way managed to escape his abuser and find happiness on the other side of heartache. Alan and Damian use humour to overcome darkness, yet they don’t shy away from confronting trauma. They share their darkest days and moments of catharsis in an engaging conversation with Paola Totaro.
