The new one-and-a-half woman show!

Acclaimed stand-up comedian Becca Hurd is bringing her new one-woman-show to The Old 505 Theatre in Newtown. Featuring original music and an original story, The Other Side of 25 is hysterical and heartfelt play is written and performed by Becca Hurd.

The Other Side of 25 tells the story of Amory, who, despite her best instincts, reluctantly agrees to become the surrogate for her sister’s baby. But after her sister and brother in-law unexpectedly die in a car crash, Amory finds herself stuck, pregnant and on the other side of 25.

The production team behind The Other Side of 25 almost entirely made up of female-identifying artists, something that was very important to Becca Hurd. "I wanted to tell a female-centric story, that captured the humour and pressure of a woman in her twenties."

More than just a story about surrogacy, The Other Side of 25 examines the expectations placed on young women, exploring pregnancy, family dynamics, and what it means for a young woman to grow up. In an age where the ‘kidult’ is king, the play takes the audience on an uproarious journey through the experiences of a very feisty female.

The play was developed at NIDA in 2018 while Becca, originally from the USA, completed the writing course there. "NIDA gave me a fantastic education, and being able to learn about the Australian brand of humour has made this play an important personal achievement for me. I draw on my personal history, and my skills as a stand-up comic to create show that aims to be dynamic, exciting and hilarious."
