39 Forever | 11 October from 8:00 PM @ Cube 37 37 Davey Street, Frankston
Do you still feel like you're 25 even though your birth date stubbornly insists you're not? Are you enquiring about Botox 'for a friend' This hilarious cabaret from Amity Dry was a sell out success in the Adelaide Fringe Festival and received 5 star reviews in the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is guaranteed to be a great girls night out!
From her childhood home perm to her 40th birthday Amity explores the pressure women face to maintain the beauty ideal and how social media, Botox and the Kardashians have forever altered the quest for eternal youth. She pokes fun at her '80s childhood, reminisces about her '90s teen exploits and questions whether 40 is the new 30 (or that's just something you say to make you feel better).
