WINNER of the Adelaide Critics Circle Award at the 2022 Adelaide Fringe Festival

In 2015, Patrick’s mum took her own life. How did this happen?

Portraying eight characters from Naomi’s life, Patrick uses their words – drawn from over thirty hours of interviews – to try and answer this question.

Directed by Bronwen Coleman (The Actors Studio), Naomi dives beneath the surface of suburban facades to uncover a community left in anguish. With love, humour and unwavering honesty, it attempts to solve the unsolvable and offers audiences a rare insight into unspeakable tragedy.

With original music composed by Biddy Connor (Chamber Made), Naomi is raw and courageous storytelling and a must-see show this Melbourne Fringe.
