For the Ground that Grew Me

Wil Greenway tells a story about stories, and how they become part of us. Deliberately digressive and elaborately elusive, Greenway weaves his words back and forth through a series of stories that ‘made’ him. Joined by two musicians and set to guitar, xylophone and song, Greenway fills the hour with words. His storytelling skills takes us back to Melbourne and to the wet, dark streets of London. As we journey with him through moments of his life, we are also greeted by honest observations about what happens to us when we die, and what will remain. The show is not only funny, but hugely entertaining and beautifully life affirming. Even it does start with a funeral.
