Belvoir presents Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta production.
The Pollard family’s world is flipped on its head when illness breaches their sanctuary. Based on the novella by acclaimed Adelaide author Peter Goldsworthy, Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam is a powerful reminder of what we do for those we love.
This one played at Parramatta and had them weeping in the aisles. It’s a detailed, humane depiction of the universe that can exist in a small family – which makes it a perfect show for Belvoir. – Eamon Flack, Artistic Director
