At the same time Sandy was struggling with debilitating bouts of depression which was only diagnosed and treated when she finally returned to Australia. Next scheduled for La Mama’s 2017 season.
A large, violent, masculine, mustached, boxing glove-wearing, motorcycle riding woman and her troupe of other off-beat characters.
