Times of My Life, a play by Tony Sheldon and Toni Lamond is more than a history of Australian show biz. It is a candid yet humorous and autobiographical story – with dialogue that is honest and inspirational.
Sheldon and Lamond have crafted observations, anecdotes and rich archival footage into a play populated with scenes and people from an extraordinary life.
Through the eyes of the inimitable and legendary Toni Lamond we plot an industry growing from its humble roots – hers is the heady days of Australian television. Born into vaudeville, pioneering Australian stars in music theatre and making her mark in cabaret is only a part of this remarkable story.
As Toni Lamond turns back time she reveals a gifted, funny and vulnerable artist.
This is courageous theatre with a powerful and uplifting story. It is an opportunity to celebrate 65 years of Australian entertainment in which we meet the main players and share the perspective from one who was there.
Times of My Life is a walk through the golden days of Australian entertainment "Her life would scarcely be believable….if it were not true"
