Our annual Middle School Drama Ensemble production is Girl Asleep, by Matthew Whittet, being performed in the Black Box Theatre from August 15 – 17.
Caught in the headlights of her 15th birthday in 1970s Australian suburbia, Greta wishes she could be anywhere else. And strangely enough ‘anywhere else’ is exactly where she finds herself – a peculiar Through-the-Looking-Glass existence that transforms the weird hypocrisy of the adult world into something absurdly beautiful. The nasty girl who makes school a misery, her almost too-romantic imaginary boyfriend and her eccentric mother all crop up in her tour of her own subconscious. But eventually, even a girl asleep has to wake up. From the wry, warm and wonderfully distinctive voice of Matthew Whittet comes a play about being lost in the jungle of teenagerdom and coming out the other side.

- Thursday 15 August – 7pm
