“AM”, written by Kemii, is a ten minute comedy stage play for the University of Queensland, Underground Productions, and Short + Sweet Queensland.
The show explores the emptiness of community radio with the “grave-yard shift”.
Set in Coominya, Central Queensland, a fumbling presenter (unnamed) is determined to hit hard journalism – despite the struggle of drunken or the lack of callers. When he finally reaches the secretary to the local LNP party, he discovers he isn’t quite as quick on his feet as hoped for.
Staged at Brisbane Powerhouse Museum/Gold Coast Arts Centre, and live read at Geoffrey Rush Studio, Brisbane in 2016.
Written and co-directed by Kemii
