Coma Land receives 8 nominations in Performing Arts WA Awards

Will O’Mahony’s Coma Land has scored 8 nominations in the upcoming Performing Arts WA Awards.

A co-production between Performing Lines WA and Black Swan State Theatre Company, the show looked at the power and pain of genius; how a child can test their parents love, strength and resolve.

Performing Lines WA has championed Will’s writing and directing work, touring his first production Great White statewide in 2015, and taking Coma Land to Black Swan, where they partnered to bring this ambition production to the stage.
