Ally can barely ride a skateboard, let alone navigate the ups and downs of her 20s. As if losing her job wasn’t enough, she battles constant climate anxiety and an increasing awareness of her own mortality. So, she muddles through the messiness the best way she knows how. By singing really loud about it.
An almost-one-woman-show, NOT TODAY is a frank, funny, emotion-charged cabaret about trying to make the most of life while you can. Featuring her entirely original score, Ally will take you on a bumpy ride through life as a not-yet-famous 26-year-old.

“Newcomer could be a younger Tim Minchin… A terrific show with a message that makes it greater than the (already impressive) sum of its parts. I’ve seen plenty of intimate, confessional shows about mental health issues, but this is not that. It is a show that shares our grief, and offers courage, honesty and hope.”
4 STARS - Harriet Cunningham, SYNDEY MORNING HERALD
“Not Today is brilliant. Poignant. Witty. And without getting in your face, relevant.”
5 STARS - Rebecca Varidel, SYDNEY SCOOP
“I loved this tiny little show! Ally, may your light continue to shine and grow in the future!”
David Kary - SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE
"captivated the audience from the [g]et go… a must-see!” WEEKEND NOTES
”Simply put, NOT TODAY was a delightful but incredibly touching show that was both entertaining to watch and meaningful enough to do what all good art should: promote discussion and honest confrontation of beliefs - about the self and others - in its audience. With the extra treat of just being such a fun show to be apart of.” Antonia Korn, THEATRE TRAVELS
