GOOLWA – 39 Forever ~ Amity Dry

Do you still think you’re 25 even though your birthday stubbornly insists you’re not? Do you look at J-Lo and hope you can look that good at 47, even though you may never have looked that good?! Do you wonder how adults were born in the 1990s?

This hilarious new show takes a candid look at female ageing in a world where Botox and Photoshop are the norm and looking your age feels like a failure. ’39 Forever’ is written and presented by Amity Dry (The Block) after the success of her hit musical ‘Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life’, which has played at the New York Musical Theatre Festival, the United Nations, been translated into Norwegian for a European season and performed at over 100 shows nationally.

After winning critical and audience acclaim for her honest account of marriage and motherhood, Amity turns her focus to ageing in this comedic and poignant exploration on the pressure women face to stay forever young.


Where – Centenary Hall, Cadell street, Goolwa

When – 17th November 2018

Cost –Cost: Adult $30, concession $25, group 6+ $25 per person
