Life’s a party. At some point we all have to leave; some of us just choose when.
After sell out shows at Melbourne, Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe – Melbourne Fringe Best Performance Nominee Twenty Minutes To Nine is arriving in Aotearoa, New Zealand!
A show about the pivotal moments in life; death, grief, loss, love, and the support of the people that get you through it. With the aid of a guitar, loop pedal and an accordion, Amanda transports you into their world; a collection of stories that are as hard-hitting as they are hilarious. It is raw, heartfelt, and real.

When confronted with suicide, Amanda and their friends didn’t know if or how to speak about it; what they learnt was that they had to. Named ‘Top Ten Must See Shows at The Edinburgh Free Fringe’ (Culture Trip), Twenty Minutes To Nine invites you to join the conversation and raise a glass to the ones you love.

“Emotionally evoking… captivating” ★★★★ – BingeFringe, 2024 “A brave, insightful, heart-wrenching solo performance.”- Fritz Magazine, Adelaide. “Engaging and thought-provoking” ★★★★ – Fringe Guru.
“So simple and so honest it is positively magnificent” ★★★★ – “Wonderfully refreshing and frank.”– “Like a sledgehammer made of feathers to the heart.” – Woody, audience member.
