A story of loss, love and redemption.

Three friends connect through their shared queer lens as they explore life and its inevitable highs and lows; with its moments of vulnerability, otherness and acceptance - symbolic of the question they are most interested to know - do they truly have autonomy over their fates, or is it society who holds their path in its hands? This two-hander travels backwards through its timeline exploring their world of friendship and hardship. Filled with a rich musical score, and within the heartbeat of its sound lies a world of Audio Description.

From All Who Came Before is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, and received development support through the GreenHouse National Artists Residency program, delivered by HotHouse Theatre in partnership with Albury City and Murray Arts.
