YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, DR. PIRATE Comes to Adelaide Fringe
For Gillian English's 30th birthday, she had a session with a famous astrologer. A prediction was made, a prophecy was revealed, & a series of events set in motion that would change her life forever. Do we control our fate, or is it written in the stars? What should we believe and where should we put our faith?
When you get your fortune told, or your chart done, or check your horoscope in the paper; do you believe it? Or is it just for fun? Do you tell everyone you don't *really* believe it, but deep down you'll be crestfallen if it doesn't come true?
There are countless pervasive belief structures holding our lives up all around us, even if we've forgotten they're there. The scaffolding of superstition, religion, and tradition have become part of the furniture of daily life. But how did we come to believe in our beliefs? Gillian English has gone through a goodly amount of beliefs in her life. In "You're a Good Man, Dr Pirate", she does a deep dive into her past, and her prophesied future to figure out what exactly she should believe next, if anything.
