Details:
On publication thirty years ago, Anne Deveson’s raw and moving family memoir Tell Me I’m Here became an instant classic, catapulting conversations about mental health to the mainstream. And now, in a superb adaptation, it comes to the Belvoir mainstage from 20th August to 25th September.

Anne’s life – the familiar juggle of marriage, career, emotions, chaos – is thrown off-balance when her son Jonathan begins speaking oddly, standing strangely, flashing into irrationality and rage. Is it just a phase, part of growing up?

The years pass, and Anne’s son has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. But putting a name to it is one thing – getting attention, getting help is another. Even the strongest families, the most steadfast parents, buckle under such stress.

SANE Australia, a charity founded by Anne Deveson which supports all people in Australia affected by complex mental health issues, is proud to partner with Belvoir on Tell Me I’m Here.
