I Made an Adult

Monday, 22 February 2021 to Saturday, 6 March 2021
Adelaide Fringe

Midnight in the kitchen. With her youngest child turning 18, a mother faces her greatest challenge yet: one final chance to make a Women's Weekly birthday cake look like the picture. But as she turns the cookbook's pages and her memories are stirred, she uncovers a truth she knows she can't hide from her child. A bittersweet story of beaten eggs, spilt milk and the sifted years of childhood. After selling out her last five-star Fringe seasons, Tracy Crisp returns with her latest show told with her trademark blend of heart and humour. (Yes, it's part four in the trilogy).

"She's whimsical, witty, perceptive, and erudite and she has a glorious way with words." Samela Harris, The Barefoot Review.

"Absolutely loved it. Tracy takes you into her world and so generously shares such incredible life moments that you will all relate to in some way. Truly a fabulous night out."
Vickie D - Fringe Feed
"This is a ‘must see’ show for anyone who has, wants, or has had children. It is also a wonderful piece of theatre delivered by a very talented author, mother, wife and performer."
Jude Hines - Stage Whispers
4 STARS. "Her delivery is superb, her observations honest. One day Felix and Leo, such strong and fortunate names, may turn up at the Bakehouse in a show: ‘My mother, the making of me’."
Ewart Shaw - The Advertiser
