Tim: “Making Upright was a complete joy and a massive privilege.
With Tim Minchin, Milly Alcock, Heather Mitchell, Ella Scott Lynch. Lucky (Tim Minchin) and Meg (Milly Alcock) in Upright, an Australian on-the-road dramedy. His character in Upright does have hints of him: Lucky has the hair, he’s from Perth, and in some of the show’s most moving moments he sings and plays piano too. Photograph: Matt Nettheim P ositioning a piano … One of Australia's most controversial and celebrated comedians is back to star in a local drama. Two misfits, thrown together by chance in the middle of the Australian desert, forge bonds in a quest to transport a precious piano from one side of the country to the other. After living overseas for more than a decade, I couldn’t have hoped to come home to a more fun and inspiring project: an original Australian outback adventure story, full of heart and laughter, made by some of most talented and dedicated creatives in the country.
