Cliffhanger was written in 1986 for performances by Barnstorm Theatre Ballarat. The script was commissioned by the Department of Environment and toured schools across Victoria. This comic play is based on conversation and tells the story of Year 9 student Jasper Allnut who has taken up various environmental causes. He is joined by friends Waldo and Coral, who eventually help Jasper to form a band to get their message across. The three friends have a small victory at a local reserve. The play could well be performed by youth theatre groups or secondary school drama students.
