Multi-award winning playwright Alana Valentine brings us two plays that deal head-on with teenage issues fraught with difficulty: bullying, belonging, isolation, identity.
A candid, moving
and sometimes shocking glimpse into the online world of today’s teen
generation. Based on interviews conducted by students, with teachers,
parents and their fellow students,
Cyberbile is a verbatim-based drama which speaks from and to the hearts of Australia’s young adults.
Set against the
backdrop of one of the most intriguing events in Newcastle’s recent
history—the grounding of the Pasha Bulka—this is a coming-of-age
tale centred around Farrah, a young Novocastrian with a fascination for
Newcastle’s industrial port. Through her obsession we explore universal
themes of isolation, belonging and identity and that time in your life
when the obsessions of childhood get grounded in reality.
