Title

Morgan Stern

Description

Morgan Stern, the latest work from AWGIE award-winning playwright Gina Schien explores one man’s experience of psychosis. The question is, “Which man?”

Shifting between families, centuries and hemispheres, we are introduced to a mysterious character known only as The Gent, who has seemingly dropped into the world of a young man living in Sydney in the 1970’s. Fragmented stories of two families struggling with the mental illness of a young adult are contrasted against the backdrop of the infamous Bethlem Asylum and contemporary psychiatric care.

Places, people and stories crystallise and dissolve throughout the performance, and the image of a one-eyed ornamental goldfish will come back to haunt you.

Morgan Stern is a powerfully moving monologue that will leave you with as many questions as answers.
