“I jolt awake at 2:20am every morning, heart thumping, pulse racing...2:20am. It’s always 2:20am”.
Four ordinary people, all bereaved by suicide, meet as strangers at a creative writing class and are forced into a reluctant bond. Together they grieve, laugh, behave badly, and reveal far more about themselves than they bargained for...
Starring Joanne Davis, Zoe Ellerton Ashley, Michael Treloar, and Izabella Yena, 2:20AM is a contemporary drama that directly tackles the subject of suicide with truth and humour, and pulses with the credibility of lived experience.
2:20AM is produced by Anvil Productions, Jesuit Social Services and Support after Suicide. This project is proudly supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and City of Yarra.
