Honor Eastly: No Feeling is Final

Drawing on stories from Honor Eastly’s critically-acclaimed ABC podcast of the same name, this groundbreaking performance memoir about the lived experience of suicidality is brought to life with video and projection visuals. 

Usually when we talk about suicide we say those four magic words: “just ask for help”. But Honor Eastly knows it’s not that simple. She’s been there and back, and now has years of phone recordings and diary entries, from the inside. 

Part performance, part personal essay, this special event is a deeply intimate and unprecedented insight into the lived experience of suicidality, and the complexity of navigating the mental health system in Australia, brought to life at The Capitol with video and projection visuals 

This is a show for anyone who’s ever wondered if life is worth living. For anyone who loves someone who has. And especially for anyone who’s felt at war with a system meant to help them. At times heartbreaking, and desperate – but also darkly funny, and charming, No Feeling Is Final is a story of difference, identity, and why we should stay alive.
