Confessions of a Closet Time Traveller
Fly by Night Productions Victoria
After a ‘near death’ experience at age ten, Anthony became aware that he can travel through time. He kept this ability a closely guarded secret until a couple of years ago, when scientists announced their discovery that we are actually all time travellers. This performance marks his coming out as a time traveller.
After the Beep
Pamela Bethel Victoria
Pamela found cassettes from her very own answering machine she had as a teenager during the early 1990’s. Despite the obvious risk of death by embarrassment, she’s sharing this archive of adolescence with live audiences. Part confessional, part show-and-tell, it’s an exploration of awkward times revealed by the recorded voices of BFs, BFFs, a frenemy and wrong numbers.
