  • As her neighbourhood undergoes gentrification, 92-year-old Irene prepares to move out of her home. As she packs her belongings, the paintings on her walls come to life and she reflects on and recollects memories and important moments in her life.

  • The show is live on air and the ladies of The Beat are covering the hot topics of the day. There’s a story about an approaching natural disaster that initially takes a back seat to other news but, as the show progresses, cannot be ignored. As confusion and panic sets in and the disaster advances, the ladies contemplate what to do and who to blame.

    As part of this performance, a selection of songs from Britta Johnson’s catalogue will also be featured. This performance will include songs from:

    • Kelly v Kelly
    • Dr Silver: A Celebration of Life
    • Life After
    • Burning Down
