Rhonda has it all: a respectable career, a devoted husband, an illicit affair, an unthinkable tragedy. No wonder she needs therapy.

Recipient of The R E Ross Trust Playwrights’ Script Development Award 2009 and with a rehearsed reading as part of the Melbourne Writers’ Festival 2010, Rhonda Is In Therapy is a new Australian work that explores the themes of loss and grief.

Rhonda Is In Therapy is produced and presented by Hoy Polloy Theatre Productions and Baggage Productions. The premiere of this production is also supported by the City of Melbourne through the Arts Grants Program, fortyfivedownstairs, Yarra Trams, Starling Communications, Millimetre, Fred Kroh Photographer the Finkel Foundation, Press Print, BJ Ball Papers, Phunktional Arts and private supporters.
