Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
Do you ever wonder about your future by looking at your parents' lives?
Hannah is an actor, with a life in the theatre. Nearly 60 years ago, her mum Angela was in the first ever Australian production of The Sound of Music but the expectations of her generation, including motherhood, stopped her from pursuing that path. Now Angela is retired, Hannah is bringing her back to the stage – where she belongs.
After You is built from conversations this mother and daughter may never have had – and by looking into her mum’s past, Hannah is weighing up her own life, choices and what the future holds for them both.
