Airports are a place of transition, empty halls of fleeting comings, goings and waitings. Gate 38 follows the experience of four groups of young people trapped at this point of departure. As contact with the outside world is cut off, the focus is squarely on what they’re doing, and where they’re going. A non-traditional musical set at the end of the world.

This play was commissioned by MacGregor State High School's Centre of Artistic Development and its development included workshops with the CAD class of 2007. No musical score required. There is room for a dancing 'chorus.'
