When I Grow Up is a show for anyone who has ever accidentally killed their houseplant, binge-watched cartoons in their pyjamas or realised that grown up life isn’t quite what they were expecting. Part stand-up, part cabaret, part slumber-party for adults. With wine.

In When I Grow up, Anne Gasko has assembled a quirky and song-studded look at the struggle to adult (yup, it’s a verb). Blending her whimsical sense of humor, soaring voice and a healthy dose of social awkwardness, Anne tackles all the big questions for a generation teetering on the edge of grown up life, such as:

-What exactly is a checking account, and by what age should you have one?
-Is it possible to be a functioning adult and still believe in epic Disney-style love?
-And why aren’t pajamas acceptable daywear?


When I Grow Up explores the expectations versus realities of being a grown up with refreshing frankness and honesty. Gasko invites you into the world of one nearly-30-something as she confronts the hard, confusing and wonderful thing that is adulthood. There will be laughter, tears, Disney and, of course, there will be wine.

When I Grow Up is a joyous and fearless premiere show from one of Melbourne’s finest talents. Bookings highly recommended.
