A Day At A Time in Rhyme is an immersive new piece of hybrid theatre written and performed by Jane Clifton, comprising spoken word, soundscape, image and music, with source material drawn from her 2019 published poetry diary of the same name.

‘And isn’t Jane Clifton perfect as a wounded, impulsive bully of a woman – mad as a cut snake – whose love for her children seems inextricable from her desire to compete with or live through them?‘ – Cameron Woodhead, The Age (for Spencer 2019)


Performed, written & produced by Jane Clifton

Directed by Terence O’Connell
