ATLANTA probes the nuances of friendship and the ways we deal with loss in a witty and absorbing manner. The central character, 29 year old Atlanta, is named after the NASA spacecraft orbiting Perth at the moment of her conception. She stands out from her educated, confident friends through her awareness of a deeper, darker side of life. Sensing this awareness, her friends are stirred in different ways, particularly after Atlanta's death. Atlanta is an imaginative play which weaves together the subconscious world of dreams with that of everyday life.
