I jolt awake at 2:20AM every morning, heart thumping, pulse racing… 2:20AM.
It’s always 2:20AM.
All bereaved by suicide, four ordinary people 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, Donna Steven, 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.
Founded in 2015 by writer/director Rebecca Lister and actor Joanne Davis, Anvil Productions is committed to making contemporary, issue-based theatre that attracts non-traditional theatre going audiences. Past works include Snapshots, Bits and Pieces, Am I Happy Yet?, HERE, Betrayal in a Valentino Frock, IDentity Film Festival and Resting Bitch Face.
For this premiere season of 2:20AM, Anvil Productions have partnered with Jesuit Social Services and Support After Suicide. Both vital organisations, Support After Suicide is recognised as one of the leading Australian suicide bereavement organisations, utilising arts projects (such as this) to connect with individuals and the wider community.
Please note – the final performance of 2:20AM on 9 September is planned to recognise and support World Suicide Prevention Day. Audience forums, facilitated by Support After Suicide, will follow each performance.
