A compelling journey of love, loss and identity

Is your life your own?

Is it yours to sculpt as you choose or is it predestined by those who came before?

Written in free verse, Same But Different, tells the story of a family. Each family member – mother, father, and child – experiences their own journey through identity, love, and loss.

An immersive theatre experience, encompassing puppetry, dance, music, and installation, that will leave you reflecting on fate and courage.

Nothing is rushed. Time was taken and thoughts were given an enormous amount of time and space and the design was just beautiful.” – Liz Jones AO
