A poem for every day. A story for every stage.

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

Using the four seasons as a framing device, A Day At A Time In Rhyme is a one woman tour de force that takes us into a year of Jane’s life as she peels back the layers to share her witty – and often poignant – observations on life. 

In this revealing, riveting hour-long performance, nothing is off limits as Jane reflects on – amongst other things – love and death and family, incontinence and wine, war and sex and Vegemite, footy, children, Christmas, Easter, and the best and worst of times.  

Supported by sound effects, music and projections, Jane will perform about 35 of the original 365 poems in a dramatised monologue, drawing on the personal to the universal as she runs the entire gamut of reflection, humour, tragedy, wit and whimsy.  

Following the performance, join us for an interactive Second Act where Jane will facilitate a Q&A session and discuss her process of writing poetry and how you can record the simple, everyday things in your life, too. Think of the Second Act as an extended ‘meet and greet’ - with a glass of wine on us!  

Let Jane’s raw honesty and humour leave you feeling inspired and uplifted as we reconnect with the joy and profoundness found in life’s fleeting moments…
