Secret House & New Ghosts Theatre Company are thrilled to present the Australian premiere of For The Grace Of You Go I by BAFTA award-winning Welsh playwright Alan Harris, a darkly funny, quick-witted, fast-moving new comedy.

"Jim's writing messages. In pepperoni. On top of pizzas. His life is going nowhere. But after watching the film I Hired A Contract Killer, Jim's found a solution – he'll just put a hit out on himself. What could possibly go wrong?

The play premiered at Theatr Clwyd, Wales in June 2021, with 4 star reviews from The Times, The Stage, Get The Chance, A Younger Theatre & Theatre Reviews North, describing the work as “potent and disturbing”, “hugely entertaining yet deeply unsettling”, “fizzing with ideas and invention… seriously clever new comedy”, “important commentary on our modern world”, and “formally playful and deeply compassionate towards its characters”.

Featuring the work of 18 incredible artists, For The Grace Of You Go I navigates themes of mental health, consumerism, capitalism and ineffectual political systems.

Run time: Approx. 75 minutes

Content warnings: Suicide, drug use, domestic violence, mental health, strong language, use of gun & gun shots.
