Making out, fighting, laughing, dancing and confessing… Drawn from over 500 starkly honest and highly confidential interviews with West Australian teenagers, this intimate and confronting play draws back the curtain on what it means to be young in our modern, media-driven society.
Five teenagers walk an emotional tightrope of online and offline relationships, colliding with one another and driving into the walls built around them. This daring, immersive play is a raw and voyeuristic view of their deepest secrets, rages, anxieties and hopes.
