Synopsis


Love in all its manifestations, from unfailing hope, raw passion and optimism to obsession and loss, is at the heart of this epic stage dramatisation of Leigh's tender and illuminating memoir.


Julia and new husband long for a child together.


Enough to gather their courage and explore IVF treatment.


As she navigates a successful career as an artist with the demands of her relationship and hopes of motherhood, her witty and lyrical observations form a real-life account of the making and breaking of her dreams.

Boldly adapted from a true story, this production focuses on one woman, her desire to create life and her attempts to shape a longed-for future.


In speaking of her experience, the personal breaks open into the universal and Avalanche becomes a story we can all relate to.
