19 weeks is a play in a swimming pool.

It's one-woman storytelling for an intimate audience.

It's sad and funny, familiar and surprising - not self-righteous or guilt-ridden, but complex and truthful.

Come and sit by the pool, put your feet in the water, and listen.

The original Adelaide Fringe 2017 season took place in the swimming pool of the Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury. It sold out before its first preview, received five star reviews and won the Best Theatre award. 

The 2018 Perth season was co-presented by The Blue Room Theatre as part of its Summer Nights program for FRINGE WORLD. It took place in the pool at the luxury COMO The Treasury hotel. It also sold out before its first preview, and has been nominated for a FRINGEWORLD Theatre Award.

The 2018 Adelaide season again sold out before opening, and won the Melbourne Fringe Tour Ready Award. 

We are delighted to be bringing 19 weeks to the Adina Apartment Hotel Melbourne for the Melbourne Fringe this September.

The original production received funding from Arts SA and the Adelaide Fringe Artists Fund, along with private donations through the Australian Cultural Fund, and in-kind support from VitalstatistixPolygraph CollectiveState Theatre Company of SA, Adelaide Festival Centre's inSpace program and Flinders University.

The 2018 tour has been supported by the Australia Council and Arts SA.
