This production is the World Premiere of November Spawned a Monster, the one-man play beautifully interwoven with the music of Morrissey and The Smiths.

Shocked out of his post-adolescence self-obsession by the death of a close friend, William, a 20 something Melburnian, attempts to make his way in an unfamiliar world. Lost and lonely, he decides to embark on a pilgrimage to Manchester, the birthplace of his idol Morrissey and the band that shaped his life, The Smiths. In order to finance his trip William takes a job working as a support worker for Patrice, a dynamic, passionate woman who happens to be confined to a wheel chair due to cerebral palsy. Much to his surprise William discovers Patrice is a fellow Morrissey/Smiths tragic and a delicate bond begins to grow. William is confronted by some very hard choices as he discovers that real love is much deeper than physical attraction and the true meaning of friendship.

With classic Morrissey and The Smiths songs performed live throughout the play, by the astoundingly talented James Wright, November Spawned a Monster is a touching, funny and unlikely love story about the need to learn life’s lessons, before it’s too late.

Critical Praise for Half a Person: My Life as told by The Smiths:

“…very entertaining from beginning to end. Frankly, if you don’t find anything to like about Half A Person, you must be more miserable than Morrissey!” – Everything Theatre, UK

“Broun’s quick-fire comedy perfectly matched Morrissey’s witty lyrics” – Stage Whispers
