Presented by Monash Centre for Theatre and Performance 3rd Year Students
“I used to feel. I don’t know what happened. It just stopped.”
A night of new Australian theatre, celebrating anarchy, anger and taking action. UPRISING explores both personal and political rebellion and protest and asks what the place of these protests are in modern society.
Directed by Susie Dee (winner of the Green Room award for Best Director), UPRISING comprises of two new plays, connected thematically and through the questions the playwrights are asking of us. Got to Start Somewhereby Patricia Cornelius (winner of the Patrick White award and the NSW Premier’s Literary award), presents six moments of protest, both real and imagined. This Age Wanted Heroes by Melissa Reeves (winner of the Jill Blewett award) shows a group of young students taking radical action: rescuing a young asylum seeker, then hiding her from the authorities.
Designed and performed by the graduating students of the Monash Centre for Theatre and Performance.
