A New Brain

A New Brain, theatre production

Our Bachelor of Music and Performing Arts Year 3 Theatre students present A New Brain, with music and lyrics by William Finn and book by Finn and James Lapine.

This is a show about making the most out of life in the face of tragedy, when a neurotic, frustrated composer is confronted with a terminal illness. The show is in fact William Finn’s autobiographical account of his own battle for life when he was afflicted with a seemingly terminal illness. As the central character, Gordon Michael Schwinn struggles to survive, he finds salvation in the healing power of art.
