Three plays from the AWGIE Award-winning playwrights Cornelius, Betzien and Reeves, exploring the gap year for thousands of young people at the end of their secondary school year.
What Goes Down In Vegas has a group of young men take a trip to Thailand, Au Pair visits young women looking after a lot more than kids in Europe and Welcome to Bulgaria has a young man in a Kafkaesque-like nightmare.
“The gap year is a time when the family is left behind and there’s the whole world to explore and become part of. We’re young and desperate for adventure. Some of us return as different people, some of us don’t come back at all. Some of us return and pick up where we left off, as if nothing had intervened,”
Catherine McKinnon, Director, UOW premiere production.
