‘I loved the idea of being grown up, you know? And I’m not. To anybody. Not to parents, not to kids. All of the burden and none of the respect and that middle ground is really hurting me… I think I killed Benny.’

Intersection:Chrysalis 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, exploring 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. Rachel Chant directed Intersection 2018: Chrysalis, featuring an exceptional cast of young actors, creating a compelling, complex mosaic of modern life for young Australians.

Intersection: Chrysalis is published by Currency Press.

 

“Soaring with splendour. To witness such youthful triumph is indeed breathtaking… Director Rachel Chant does outstanding work in helping us find a sense of cohesion for the disparate plays, through her exquisite calibration, from story to story, of tone and style. Also impressive is her work here with the brilliant cast of eight.” Suzy Wrong – SuzyGoesSee

“Very funny, very frank.” Jason Blake – Audrey Journal

“A seamless, entertaining watch… vibrates with the complexity of modern life… an engrossing insight into a world we rarely see presented¬† truthfully on stage.” Judith Greenaway – Sydney Arts Guide
