Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman’s The 7 Stages of Grieving
is an Australian masterpiece. In this reimagined production directed by
Shari Sebbens, Helpmann Award-winner Elaine Crombie paints a rich
portrait of the different phases of Aboriginal history in what is sure
to be another of her tour de force performances.
Defiantly funny and deeply moving, The 7 Stages of Grieving is an invitation to join hands, to grieve, to reflect on our past and look to the future.
Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman are two of our greatest theatre
minds. This classic and beloved Australian play should be revived
every year as far as I’m concerned. Part-theatre, part-ceremony,
part-meditation, this is a virtuoso vehicle for an actress. We’re lucky
to have one of the best in the divine Elaine Crombie. Mitchell
