April is an over-thinker, hurtling towards the end of her messy twenties when a surprise pregnancy knocks her for six. Amongst the chaos of moving out of her share house and her partner’s sudden departure to Antarctica, she bumps into a high school lover, is visited by the ghost of her great-grandmother and becomes saddled with a strange fourteen-year-old girl she’s not sure what to do with.

April Marlowe’s Abortion is a fresh, new comedy (yes, it is a comedy) about what it’s like to be right at the edge of something and have no clue what to do. Despite her best efforts April’s decisions take on epic proportions, in a journey taking you from the red sand of Central Australia, to the icy Antarctic and back to inner-city Sydney. Bursting with heart and imagination, this is a celebration of choice in all it’s weird, wonderful complexity.

Presented by Snatched Collective.
