It Takes a Lot Not To End Up Dead
An original cabaret by Lizzie Flynn & Pat Flynn
Hitch a ride on this musical journey back home to redemption
An original collection of toe-tapping songs and tender ballads weaved into a honest conversation between songwriter Lizzie Flynn and her younger self, played by Matilda Award nominated Ella Macrokanis. As she heads to her country town school reunion, Lizzie revisits shared experiences of love, self-discovery, friendships and the sense of closure that going home brings. It Takes A Lot Not To End Up Dead is "a made-to-order festival sing-along" Chris Lambie-Rhythms Magazine
Ella was taught music by Lizzie as a twelve-year-old student at West End Primary School Brisbane. Ms Flynn provided the inspiration and encouragement to take an artistic career seriously, so there is a truthful connection between the two in this production. A few years on, with Ella now having performing experience in both musical theatre and acting and Lizzie having written a new album of original songs, they have come together to take you on a journey of the ‘sliding door’ moments that we face in the road trip of our lives.
