Cusp

Date: 8 Feb 2020

Elvis wants Rosie. Rosie wants to escape. Maddie doesn’t know what she wants; but it sure isn’t this.

While Rosie balances the needs of community with her own life dreams, Elvis juggles a life of crime with a tougher path into the straight-and-narrow, and Maddie faces life as a single parent unless she aborts her unborn child.

Award-winning playwright Mary Anne Butler’s Cusp explores the lives of three young Territorians on the ‘cusp’ of adulthood, each facing life-changing choices.

‘The play deals quite a bit with what fate throws at you,” says brown. “As the character Elvis says ‘some people get better choices to choose from’. Some people are more privileged than others in terms of their life journey, and some people are dealt a rotten card to deal with the best they can.”

Directed by ATYP Sydney’s Fraser Corfield and first performed at Darwin’s Brown’s Mart Theatre in 2019, Cusp features Stevie Jean, Nyasha Ogden and Josh McElroy.
