The End of Eddy (Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne Australia)PRESENTED BY MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVALThe internationally acclaimed story comes of age on stage.Édouard Louis was put on the world map at just 21 with this devastating true account of growing up gay and poor in rural France. The perpetual grey weather that hung over Eddy met its human counterparts in his alcoholic father, miserable mother, brooding halfbrother and a school culture of bullying, homophobia and misogyny. Eddy’s only option: to find a way out. This adaptation of Louis’ moving memoir is anything but deflating, however, mustering a theatrical and televisual arsenal to reclaim the joie de vivre every outsider deserves. Often manifesting a mischievous irreverence towards theatre conventions and tapping a profound vein of empathy, The End of Eddy draws out the universal themes inherent in this stunning autobiography to create something more. We know you’ll feel it too. For more information visit https://malthousetheatre.com.au/whats-on/the-end-of-eddy Theatre First RSS feed: https://feeds.megaphone.fm/ivetheatrereviews  Subscribe, rate and review Theatre First at all good podcatcher apps, including Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts (formerly iTunes), Stitcher, Pocket Casts, CastBox.FM, Podbean, ACast etc.If you're enjoying Theatre First podcast, please share and tell your friends.
