Tender, small town nostalgia
NSW | West Australian Premiere
“It’s Jono’s 18th tonight and you’re going as a blueberry because the theme is ‘childhood memories’ and you want to look like Violet Beauregard from Willy Wonka…but sluttier.”Being 17 is awkward. Having to take care of your sick dad when you’re 17 is another story. Especially when he keeps trying to shave his eyebrows off.
Originally developed with Australian Theatre for Young People and shortlisted for the 2017 Griffin Award, Ang Collins’ Blueberry Play will have its WA Premiere after a smash season at Griffin Theatre’s Batch Festival.
This new play explores the high highs and the low lows of being a teenage girl in a small town; a beautifully intimate portrait of adolescence, family life and mental health.
“Blueberry Play is a moreish delicacy.” — Sydney Arts Guide
