2:20AM by Rebecca Lister; directed by Hallie Shellam
‘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, Izabella Yena, Michael Treloar and Zoe Ellerton-Ashley
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. It is drawn from Lister’s own experience of losing a family member to suicide along with real stories of people directly impacted by suicide.
