Next to Normal

Date: 13 Oct 2020

The landmark musical Next to Normal premiered in 2009 on Broadway, winning three Tony Awards for its unflinching portrayal of an ordinary family trying to deal with the effects of mental illness.

Next to Normal tells the story of suburban housewife Diana, struggling to come to terms with her son’s death. It explores issues of grief, suicide, drug abuse, ethics in modern psychiatry and the underbelly of suburban life with love, sympathy and heart.

This new production for NIDA is directed by Darren Yap and features choreography by Kelley Abbey, design by Nick Fry and costumes by Charlotte Mungomery.
