Rebecca Lister … playwright, director, performer, teacher, and producer. Co-artistic director, Anvil Productions. Writer, 2:20AM.
Penny Gibson …contributor to development, 2:20AM

Eureka Street, Andrew Hamilton, August 2018.
"The play in turn helps those who watch it to break down taboos that might make them shrink from people whose relatives and friends have taken their own lives. It also models a way of responding reasonably and with open hearts to suicide."
Art News Portal, Sassy Red PR, August 2018.
"A new Australian play by award winning playwright Rebecca Lister, '2:20AM' draws from Lister’s own experience of losing a family member to suicide, along with real stories of 50 other individuals directly impacted by suicide."
Be Melbourne, Angela Perez, 2018.
"...a contemporary drama that tackles the subject of suicide with truth and humour, and pulses with the credibility of lived experience."
The Plus Ones, September 2018.
"Lister’s play is one of unity and hope."
Theatre People, David Gardette, September 2018.
"Using real life experiences from participants in writers groups, in-depth interviews and her own experience on losing a family member to suicide, Lister brings us a beautifully powerful new work that goes beyond the loss of a loved one and into the lives of those struggling to understand why."
My Melbourne, Myron My, September 2018.
"2:20am is an affecting story of mourning, acceptance, resilience and hope."
Cast: Joanne Davis, Zoe Ellerton Ashley, Michael Treloar, & Izabella Yena.
