'What Is The Matter With Mary Jane?' WIN tickets

This just in - a must-see event in Sydney, and Josie's Juice blog readers can win tickets!

The powerful, funny and inspiring production, 'What is the Matter with Mary Jane?', will take place at the Seymour Centre from 4 to 8 August 2015. A one woman show, the production will explore the world of eating disorders telling the poignant personal story of the show’s director, Sancia Robinson.

Co-written by Robinson and Wendy Harmer, 'What is the Matter with Mary Jane?' has become a classic play text not only as a fine example of solo drama performance but as a deeply insightful tool for understanding the complex issues surrounding eating disorders.

A searingly honest piece, the show delves into mental illness and exposes the hopelessness felt when trapped within such a disorder. It will have the audience in fits of uncontrollable laughter and the next minute, sitting in compassionate silence.

Talented Gabrielle Savrone will perform the painful reality of Robinson’s 12-year rollercoaster ride of eating disorders.




Following the August 5 performance, there will be a Q & A session with Wendy Harmer and Sancia Robinson and on August 6, a panel discussion will be held with specialists from the University of Sydney and the Charles Perkins Centre discussing the complex issues raised in the play.
