In this one-woman show, a pessimistic life coach on the brink hosts an evening of speakers so motivational they rival Tony Robbins and TED talks. The secrets of self-betterment will be revealed by high achievers from all walks of life, from an adventurer to a zoologist and author. From a former test cricketer to an Aussie hip-hop legend. Part sketch comedy, part satire, and total mid-life melt down, High Achievers will hand you the key to unlock the door to open the room that houses the box that contains the pouch that holds your brand new future.


"★★★☆ - In a festival awash with semi-improvised shows replete with anecdotes and scatter-gun styles, it is refreshing to take in a full-bodied theatrical show such as High Achievers, something that has structure, character and even a point or two to make about how best not to live our lives." - Jim Schembri, Herald Sun

"★★★★★ - High Achievers will have you hooting and howling with laughter." - Samsara Dunston, What Did She Think

"★★★★ - High Achievers is a fantastically blending array of sketches that manage to showcase both a superb writing and acting ability." - Stacey Waters, Pop Culture-y
