After taking a job as a legal transcriptionist, writer and performer Ash Flanders begins unpicking the transcript of his own life. What emerges is a decidedly personal monologue that examines creation, death and what makes us who we are.
Ash Flanders is a multi award-winning writer and performer. In 2006, he and Declan Greene created queer independent theatre company Sisters Grimm and together have written countless shows including Little Mercy (STC), The Sovereign Wife (MTC Neon), Calpurnia Descending (Malthouse Theatre/STC), Lilith: The Jungle Girl (MTC), and an adaptation of Verdi’s La Traviata (Belvoir), all of which Ash also performed in.
His solo work includes the critically acclaimed cabaret works Playing to Win, Ash Flanders is Nothing, Special Victim, Meme Girls and Negative Energy Inc. As an actor he has been seen in Blackie Blackie Brown: The Traditional Owner of Death (STC / Malthouse), the solo show Buyer & Cellar (MTC), Adena Jacobs’ Hedda (Belvoir), The Temple (Malthouse), The Golden Dragon (MTC), and Psycho Beach Party (Little Ones Theatre). He can also be found online in the web series he created with Peter Paltos and David Morris, FRIENDLY.
Later this year Sisters Grimm will present their new musical adaptation of The Sovereign Wife at Sydney’s Hayes Theatre with music and lyrics by Australian icon Casey Bennetto.
