Alice Tovey: Existential Crisis - Melbourne Fringe

A mental breakdown with lights, tights and electric guitars.

Existential Crisis (A Rock Opera) is the brand new cabaret by award winning duo Alice Tovey and Ned Dixon. Together with a live four-piece band, Tovey and Dixon’s fist pumping, velvet wearing, 80s dramatic rock opera explores the crushing sense of anxiety that goes hand-in-hand with the dreaded quarter life crisis.

Flipping cabaret on its head, this show hands steel instruments to classically trained musicians. Part narrative, part ballad and full balls-to-the-wall rock, Existential Crisis brings all the energy of a live band and big vocals and aims to kick nihilism in the proverbial d*ck.

Alice Tovey is a Melbourne based singer, songwriter, comedian, actress, writer and egomaniac. Her first solo show, Malice (written and performed with composer Ned Dixon) was nominated for a Green Room Award for Best Original Songs and won an Adelaide Fringe Festival Weekly Award for Best Emerging Artist. Again collaborating with Ned Dixon, Alice premiered Personal Messiah (2016) and Mansplaining (2017) to much acclaim.
