Bumming With Jane
By Tahli Corin

Presented by Hannah Catherine Productions


Patrick and Jane are madly in love, madly in lust and occasionally just plain mad. All their furniture except the couch has been sold to the pawnbroker, they live on a diet of cheap wine, baked beans and whatever they can find in the dumpsters behind the local supermarket. They take it in turns to hold down a part-time job. Life is great. But nothing lasts.

Inspired by the poetry of Charles Bukowski and the modern Australian city, Bumming With Jane is about love, poverty and the fleeting joy of choosing to live a free and ragged-arse life.

She is currently studying at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) and upon being accepted she moved to Perth to further pursue her passion for acting and performing arts. Alicia has been performing in musicals and plays for over 10 years, her most recent theatre credits include Fantine in Les Misérables, Caroline in I and You and Chess in We Are the Tigers.

Directed by Hannah Smith

Hannah is an aspiring Director and is thrilled to bring Bumming with Jane to Adelaide as her "city debut". Growing up in Murray Bridge Hannah created her own directing opportunities, by starting a small company and putting on 8 theatre shows independently since she was 14 years old. This then led her to falling in love with every aspect of theatre and continued on through further study of the arts. Hannah is delighted for everyone to come and watch the show and go through the emotional roller-coaster that is Bumming With Jane.
