And that’s it for another festival. Aunty Donna would first off like to thank a bunch of cool cats who made Fax Machine just a real treat of a play to put on in front of friends. Fuckin’ number one is Max Miller; for shooting and cutting ALL our video and online content (look out for this guy and remember his name, cause big, big things are what he likes to stick up boys bottoms when they’re in a vulnerable state). Tom “slays sluts” Armstrong (of GodWolf (JJJ (5 Star review (Rosie)), Channel V) fame) for mixing and writing all our show tunes and sing songs. Together they make up FIGURE 09, and are the AV soul of Donna. Check them out below. Second last and finally, Isabelle Clara Mason; for her super above-and-beyond role as our glorious, supportive producer.
As for Donna? We’ll be taking a small shit / break over the next few weeks. Who knows what we will do… Travel? Buy a house in Melbourne? Write a musical? Work on that short story? Wake up at 12 every day eat an all egg diet and play Nintendo while cry? Who knows?
Keep an eye on our twitter and facebook for gigs, blips and plans for the future.
Until next season.
Lots of love, Aunty Donna.
