Christmas Eve: a time for peace, love, carols, reunion and family. But not this Christmas Eve. Not this reunion. Liz, the 30-something prodigal daughter bursts through the door after years of sybaritic globe-trotting. A musical and theatrical tour de force, stunningly portrayed by Christie Whelan Browne, Liz is talented, shameless, beautiful, troubled and hilariously needy. But this time she wants more than pinot gris, a loan, and to borrow her mother’s clothes – she wants answers.
Whelan Browne’s compelling voice, accompanied by piano giant Joe Chindamo and violin virtuoso Zoë Black, dazzles in a mesmerising journey of song and theatrical intimacy.
Almost every move Whelan Browne makes is funny...she conveys honesty with touching directness.. The Age
