In Their Footsteps 

By Ashley Adelman and Infinite Variety Productions 

It’s been 50 years since thousands of young American women served their country in Vietnam, and their stories have remained largely untold … until now.

Based on the true accounts of five extraordinary women, In Their Footsteps explores the experiences of women working in war zones, their struggles to be recognised heroes, their loss of faith and the friendships they forged in the face of trauma.

This show debuts in Sydney after successful runs Off-Broadway and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Rattling the Keys 

By Zoe Muller 

A boy is lying dead next door, a blood stained knife sits in their living room and only one of them knows who did it.

Winner of the 2018 State Theatre Company of South Australia and Flinders University Junior Young Playwright’s Award, this suspenseful murder mystery follows five teens living in the small rural town of Coober Pedy. Struggling with isolation and lack of opportunities, they turn to crystal meth and it is under its influence that memories start to become hazy…why were they arguing in the first place? What can they say to the police?

Who even was that kid next door?

Lipstick

By Lane Stanley 

Anna is waiting in her apartment for her date, but is it a date, or are they just ‘Gal-Pals’? Meanwhile, her best friend, Mal, has dozens of internet dates knocking on the door and to make matters worse, Anna’s former lover turns up having bailed on her wedding to win her back.

Her date is having an identity crisis, her ex is hiding in her bathroom, Mal’s mother has turned up for a surprise visit from out of town … and all this is happening whilst her landlord is trying to fit the broken bathtub with a butt plug.

Lipstick is a fast paced, Queer farce where everything seems to go wrong and you’re never quite sure who is behind the door.

Girl Shut Your Mouth

By Gita Bezard

Bad things happen to girls who go out after dark.

Gita Bezard’s (The Last Great Hunt) Girl Shut Your Mouth is a dark comedy about ordinary living under extraordinary circumstances.

When the world you know has been ripped away, what lengths will you go to just to survive?

Katie, Grace, Mia and Darcy are your average young girls. They love boys and dresses and the idea of a feminist future. Everything about them is normal. Except their friends die on a monthly basis. Except their lives are in danger if they go out after sunset. Except they aren’t really your average young girls at all.

When Katie is shot in yet another attack on their freedoms, her bullet quickly becomes her ticket out and over to a place rumoured to be free of prejudices, rules and restrictions. But is anywhere really that perfect? And how can her friends go too?
