Not Today


SEASON EXTENDED DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND

4 STARS – Sydney Morning Herald

5 STARS – Sydney Scoop

” Captivated the audience from the get go… a must-see!” Weekend Notes

After captivating audiences and critics alike during her debut season, Ally Morgan’s one-woman cabaret premieres at Theatre Works bigger, brighter, and bolder than before.

26-year-old Ally Morgan is determined to save the world from climate change. How does she plan to do it? Through the power of THEATRE! The only problem is that she’s so anxious about climate change that she can’t actually write the life-changing show that will save the world through the power of theatre… See the problem?

So, when Ally finally books in to see a psychologist and a guided meditation miraculously transports her to a real-life theatre in front of YOU, she’s got no choice but to devise a one-woman show on the spot – right here, right now!

‘Not Today’ is a frank and funny trip inside the mind of an anxious millennial on a mission. Armed with her army of instruments and entirely original score, Ally may not quite save the world, but she’ll sure put on one heck of a show.

“We are here, and we will die someday, but not today.”

“4.5 STARS – Wholly original… a call to arms to continue fighting for climate justice day to day and a cathartic reminder of what connects us. To see this connection with all its associated existential heft play out in a full theatre is to feel just how vital art is to fostering that connection”. Guy Webster – THEATRE PEOPLE

“I rate Not Today as one of the best shows I’ve seen in MICF 2022. The show, and Ally’s overall performance, are fresh, dynamic and imaginative. I’m perplexed as to how Ally has missed out on an MICF 2022 award nomination. In my book, she’s more than worthy. So go and see this up and coming talent while you have the chance!”  Fiona Anderson – WEEKEND NOTES MELBOURNE

“An engagingly timely piece of theatre…  Ally Morgan’s cabaret ‘Not Today’ is a show unafraid to wear its heart on its metaphoric sleeve…  A great addition to the Festival’s comedy landscape, ‘Not Today’ is a show you should not wait until tomorrow to see.” – Alley Edwards, THEATRE HAUS
