”They laughed and sang a song of a cat who was afraid of shadows.”
Amelia grew up reading her own bedtime stories and bandaging her own scrapes. Now, she has finally written her own story and is eager to get it published. She lives with her Mother, and their unorthodox relationship begins to boil under the pressure of Amelia’s struggles with the final chapter.
Written by Hamilton playwright Melanie Allison, My Incredibly Important Life showcases the unique soundscapes of Amelia’s memories and the story that she is preparing herself to share.
Shortlisted for Playmarket’s Playwrights b4 25 competition, My Incredibly Important Life is a play of old hurts and regrets, lingering ghosts, and possible legacies.
“…gentle, delicate, compelling, and skilfully structured.” – Playmarket
