A National Theatre of Parramatta production

A tale of love and loss, where family is everything.
How far would you go to protect your family? This is an evocative, haunting and moving tale based on the much-loved novella by acclaimed Australian author Peter Goldsworthy.
Boycotting the outside world and its evils, the Pollard family create a perfect cocoon, defining their lives through each other. The safety of their world is flipped on its head when illness breaches their sanctuary.
Confronting, yet delicately and insightfully crafted for the stage by award-winning actor and playwright Steve Rodgers with internationally sought-after director Darren Yap (Letters to Lindy, Diving for Pearls), Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam is a powerful reminder of what people do for those they love. It comes to Wollongong fresh from a return Sydney season at Belvoir St Theatre.
