Intersection 2019: Arrival

Date: 4 Jan 2019

It’s midnight and twin siblings argue over what to do with the dog they just ran over.

In a school common room a student is struggling to clean a sharpie drawing of a you-know-what off a window.

In an undisclosed location a boy prepares for his new life in a special witness protection program for embarrassed youths.

Each year ATYP brings together 20 playwrights from across the country for its National Studio and challenges them to create stories that speak to the experience of being 17-years-old in Australia, here and now.

The 10 most startling pieces make up the annual Intersection production.

Sophie Kelly directs.
