Australian Theatre for Young People

Intersection 2018: Chrysalis

Intersection: Chrysalis is a collection of short plays written by some of the most exciting emerging playwrights in the country.

In a small town, a young woman applies make-up like layers of defence, preparing to go into battle. On top of the town tip, two friends stand guard as some home truths emerge. At the local arcade a grotesque ritual sacrifice is taking place.  And a young woman obsessed with Stevie Nicks thinks she’s solved the mystery about the blood on the silo just out of town...

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. Directed by rising star of Sydney theatre Rachel Chant, Intersection 2018: Chrysalis features an exceptional cast of young actors, creating a compelling, complex mosaic of modern life for young Australians.

Critically acclaimed in its first incarnation, it returns to explore the excitement, terror and electricity of being seventeen.
