Inspired by Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award®-winning masterpiece, Jagged Little Pill is “immaculate – charged, confrontational, and uncompromising” (Daily Beast). This electrifying musical brings to the stage the joyful and redemptive story of the Healys.

Jagged Little Pill tells the story of the Healys, the perfectly imperfect family. To the outside world they are the suburban ideal – a PTA mum who is always cheering on her kids, a busy lawyer dad providing the best for his family, a high achieving son who’s just made valedictorian, and the artistic adopted daughter fighting for change in small town Connecticut. But nothing is as it seems.

Returning to Sydney with the original cast including stage and screen icon Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Chicago), and Tim Draxl (A Place to Call Home) and featuring beloved Alanis Morissette hits including ‘You Oughta Know’, ‘Head Over Feet’, ‘Hand In My Pocket’, and ‘Ironic’, Jagged Little Pill is the musical of the moment.

Jagged Little Pill runs for approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes, including one 20-minute interval.
