SEE THE FILM

HealthPlay is a contemporary theatre company based in Melbourne.

We write and perform plays offering a humorous outlook on challenging health issues. The narratives are inspired by true life stories. Our plays can be performed almost anywhere and can be accompanied by a discussion forum. See the film Hoppy’s Heroes, the story behind the South Australian tour of HealthPlay’s For Better, For Worse.

What’s Happening

Health Play welcomes play number twelve! Stig Wemyss, an original member of the HeathPlay family, has written and produced “Out of the Blue”, a play about depression and suicide in rural areas. It has now been included under the HealthPlay banner in the hope that it will tour widely, especially in the bush, to combat the rise of suicide in those areas. For all details and bookings check our “What’s On” page.
