Carried Away

Scaled carried away brochure image

Crib, check! Nappies, check! Weird breast-pump thing, check! Losing mind, check! Mum on speed-dial, quickest route to the hospital mapped... check! check!

Phoebe discovers she's pregnant again after a miscarriage and wants to talk. You're invited into the home and head of a mid-twenties girl frantically trying to figure out what it means to be a woman, to be an adult... to just be a functioning human.

An honest conversation about struggling with unspoken problems and the people who help us on our journeys. A fresh, frank new solo-show about big decisions, bad advice, and making it up as you go along.

"Sensitive and well-observed piece with a sharp, contemporary sense of humour, fully deserving of the emotional response it earns for its subject matter." The Scotsman

Presented by:
Joanne Hartstone & Nightingale Productions

Nightingale Productions consists of Lizzie Grace and Alexandra Simonet. They are both actors that met whilst training at Mountview Academy Of Theatre Arts in London and they then went on to work with Patch of Blue Theatre. Their passion for telling stories that are unspoken began when, with Patch of Blue, they wrote ‘We Live By The Sea,’ a play about an autistic teenage girl. This drive pushed them into writing ‘Carried Away,’ which came into existence earlier this year after they discovered that both of their mothers had gone through multiple miscarriages. They were astounded by the lack of conversation in today’s society about the topic. Determined to get the conversation going and to let women who have miscarried know they are not alone, the girls set upon writing ‘Carried Away.’

Season has ended


Adelaide Botanic Garden

An idyllic and peaceful black box theatre, an outdoor rose garden bar by Blanco, and views of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens lake and the Conservatory. With ample parking on Hackney road (next to the Wine Centre), the Noel Lothian Hall is not your typical fringe venue. Home to a season of theatrical events, curated by Artistic Director Joanne Hartstone (The Bunker Trilogy, My Name Is Saoirse, The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign) and run by South Australian Artists. The Noel Lothian Hall is a blank canvas for theatre performers (a bricks and mortar building with modern technical capabilities, silence and blackout!) and a gorgeous retreat for patrons from the busy bustle of the fringe.

Enter via Goodman Gates off Hackney Rd, (next to Wine Centre Car Park), Adelaide, SA, 5000
