“Just because these stories are dark, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be heard. I think of them as real stories rather than dark. Girls Act Good have always shown a light on real stories and these ones need to see the light,” says Monk.

“Last Breath sees a member of GAG writing and performing a to-camera one-hander, and – in every instance– utterly disappearing into the character of woman driven and defined by violence.”

“Girls Act Good, an all-female troupe, generate their own material – with all the risks that implies.  But here Jennifer Monk keeps things rolling along, the cast is immensely likeable, the show has that elusive thing ‘heart’”

“Things to see to get you in the Christmas spirit. Sure, Christmas is all about spending time with family and friends, but what better way to bond than over a great show or gig?”

“The shadow of the gallows looms large over the women of Last Breath as they await their fate. What will they say in those final moments, before their fate is determined?”

"This isn't so much a review but a recommendation. If you want to see something that allows a break from the normal rigours of cold theatres, huge audiences and Melbourne's plague of overly internalised, apologetic performances...then go see this!"

Stage Whisper review

Stage Whisper review

"Girls Act Good is a collective of talented women who should be more widely known and widely seen.  In this production – an ‘immersive theatre’ evening, directed by Lee McClenaghan – Perri Cummings and her collaborators have come up with a show that is at once inventive, creepy, satirical and witty."
