Welcome To Lit Live

Prepare for a unique experience, full of exploration and imagination.

Lit Live is a simple concept:

We take a memorable and diverse selection of international stories and pair them with brilliant performers.

But what makes this straightforward idea so special is the beautiful alchemy of language and the rollercoaster of emotions that well-told stories can take you on. Stories can inspire, provoke and entertain.

You can be transported across the world to places and times both familiar and strange, and be entranced by the funny, tragic, silly and sublime.

Produced and presented by actor Sarah McNeill, each literary performance of Lit Live is carefully crafted around a theme and often includes live musicians. Lit Live also produces theatrical shows and play readings.

Lit Live performs at:

*Centre for Stories, Northbridge


*Art galleries

​*Literature festivals​

*Private and corporate events

It is a uniquely shared experience.

Call producer Sarah McNeill to discuss your next event.

"I have laughed, been surprised and even got a bit teary, but always stayed absolutely enthralled..."
