★★★★ 2:20AM is important theatre…a beautifully powerful new work THEATREPEOPLE
by Rebecca Lister; directed by Hallie Shellam
2:20AM is a contemporary drama that directly tackles the subject of suicide with truth & humour, & pulses with the credibility of lived experience. Four ordinary people, all bereaved by suicide, meet as strangers at a creative writing class & are forced into a reluctant bond. Together they grieve, laugh, behave badly, & reveal far more about themselves than they bargained for…
…the show is a real and frank conversation on life, survival skills and grief and gives in equal measure quality theatre with great performances and a dose of laughter - with a healthy reality check to go along with it. be Melbourne

Absolutely top rate acting, and such an amazing script. I can’t believe that such a sensitive topic could be explored so well at so many levels. Not a note off. Perfect. Sarah, audience member
