Australian Theatre for Young People and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre Present Intersection Chrysalis: Written by the writers of the 2017 National Studio
Intersection is a collection of short plays written by the most exciting young playwrights in the country. A meeting point of young lives travelling very different routes, the production offers a unique snapshot of modern Australia. Critically acclaimed in its first incarnation, it returns to explore the excitement, terror and electricity of being seventeen.
Each year ATYP brings together 20 young writers from across the country and challenges them to create stories that speak to the experience of being seventeen years old in Australia, here and now. Directed by rising star of Sydney theatre Rachel Chant Intersection 2018: Chrysalis features an exceptional cast of young actors, creating a compelling, complex mosaic of modern life for young Australians.
ATYP will continue our relationship with Currency Press, who will publish the pieces in one book so they can be performed by young people for years to come.
Mentors: Michelle Lee, Stephen Carleton and Mary Rachel Brown
‘ATYP is a critical part of the national theatre ecology. Intersection reflects Australia back at us, explaining in young people’s own words what their concerns are, what their hopes are, and what we can expect from our artists in the future.’ – Time Out Sydney

THEATRE: OEDIPUS SCHMOEDIPUS

7.30pm - 8.40pm
Oedipus Schmoedipus is about death: real death, fake death, and the Western theatrical canon. It’s joyful and dark, stupid and smart, hilarious and confronting.
