Life’s a party. At some point we all have to leave; some of us just choose when. Through the art of storytelling, live musical soundscapes, and spoken word, Twenty Minutes to Nine is an autobiographical piece dealing with loss. It is raw, honest and surprisingly comedic. Twenty Minutes to Nine is Amanda’s Melbourne Fringe debut. Coming off the back of an intensive Honours year at Deakin University, she found herself once again dealing with the loss of friends and relatives. Mirroring a year from her early twenties, Amanda was able to draw similarities between the two and create an emotionally raw theatre piece for her exam. Now reworked and refined, Twenty Minutes to Nine is ready for its world premiere.
Warning: Contains coarse language, adult themes, themes of suicide and death
“Amanda takes audiences on a comical and surprising journey through the places we thought we had forgotten.” Louise Morris. Deakin University.
