‘You sure the abyss is our only option? Isn’t there like … an option to go forward into a nice warm hug? World peace? You know … nice stuff.’—Drag’na Dhuul by Michele Gould

Surrounded by snacks, players begin a game of Dungeons and Dragons in which identities will be explored and revealed. As Russia invades Ukraine, two siblings start to remember their grandmother and the heritage she felt forced to hide. X-Box controllers in hand, two cousins decide it might be time to kill Grandma—but what about her great samosas?
Accused by her brother of being too scared to attend their dad’s stag-do, Hen discovers that no one wants to be a chicken. And when the guy in shorts from Year 10 shows he’s not nearly as cool as she thought, will a young woman find the courage to speak up?

Each year, ATYP brings together 20 playwrights from around Australia to create sharp, surprising, relevant scripts for teenage performers. The Intersection Festival is the creative reimagining of our popular Voices Project and Intersection plays, giving young people the opportunity to perform brand-new short plays written by some of the country’s best new writers.

We acknowledge that we live and create on unceded lands. We pay our respects to the First Peoples of Australia, and to their elders past, present and future.
