About the event

We need to talk about Harry Joy. The world revolves around him. Until he dies on a sunny afternoon.

He awakens to a curious vision of the world he has known for 39 years. Fakes instead of family. Allies have become enemies. Conspiracies everywhere. His wife, children and friends attempt to punish him through a series of twisted inconveniences. Harry concludes that this Hell around him has been there the entire time. He’s just been too asleep to see it.

Peter Carey’s madcap novel is brought to life in a lush and extraordinary collaboration from the team behind Picnic at Hanging Rock. Starring Toby Truslove (ABC’s 'Utopia') and a stellar ensemble cast, follow Harry as he clamours for his soul, from suburbia to the rainforest and beyond.

★★★★ The next laugh is never far away. Bliss is definitely for an Australian audience…

This work has so much to say about our country, our sexism, our health and our values that it is impossible to leave without being affected and thinking about its multi-layered messages.
