On the eve of her 30th birthday, Naomi has it all. A high-paying job, a good looking boyfriend and a great social life. But an unexpected run-in with an ex leaves her wondering – what if things had turned out differently?
This play with music combines theoretical physics and jazz. Naomi explores three different versions of her life:
1. The high-flying career woman.
2. The baby-wearing Earth Mother.
3. The sultry jazz singer.
As Naomi is catapulted from one version of her life to another, she begins to concoct a plan. What if she can cease to exist in one reality and take up residence in another? But not all is quite what it seems on the other side of the black hole…

“Whether it’s an audacious blending of Savage Garden’s To the Moon and Back and the standard Fly Me to the Moon, the Goo Goo Dolls’ Iris, Jewel’s You Were Meant for Me or No Doubt’s Just a Girl, Hutchison, Longhurst and the boys beat and belt them out, often to a thrilling effect that’s more than worth the price of admission.” – The West Australian
