A new performance is helping children and their families understand and healthily tackle stress.
Stressica is a slapstick comedy which discusses managing stress and anxiety for four to 12-year-olds through the eyes of the character Isaac, whose stress manifests itself as a mischievous pest during the performance.
Producer Bindy Stephens said she wrote the show to provide a portal into the lives of children and their mental health.
"Stress and anxiety are so prevalent in society with young people," she said.

The production will also tour as part of the Tassie School Tour.
