The Melbourne Theatre Company presents the Australian premiere of the three-time Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal at the Arts Centre from May 3. The play centres on Diana Goodman, a mother struggling with bipolar disorder, and the effect her illness has on her shattered family. The emotion-drenched musical delves into powerful subjects such as grief and loss, drug abuse, suicide, and the ethics of modern psychiatry.
