There’s a theory that we don’t truly become ourselves until our parents die.
Beetle Graduation, is the funny, touching and very human story of a woman named Beetle as she journeys towards reconciliation with her dying mother. With wicked black humour and powerful emotion, Michaela Cantwell as Beetle and Carmel Johnson as her mother bring to life the complex relationship of two strong women with very strong opinions.
