Blueberry Play featured in ATYP’s Intersection in February 2017 and was shortlisted for the 2017 Griffin Award.
This exciting new play explores the high highs and the low lows of being a teenage girl in a small town. Playwright-to-watch Ang Collins has crafted a beautifully intimate story about family life, adolescence, and mental and physical illness.
Blueberry Play is featuring in Griffin’s new Batch Festival—a three-week fiesta of the freshest, edgiest and most inventive new shows in Sydney. An exciting crop of storytellers, poets, comedy artists and non-traditional performance makers from across the country will take over the iconic Stables stage from 11-28 April—and when it all gets too exciting one can refresh in the foyer with hand-crafted beers courtesy of Batch Brewing Co.
Directed by Sheridan Harbridge (Nosferatutu, or Bleeding at the Ballet – Griffin Theatre Company), Blueberry Play stars exciting new talent: Contessa Treffone (Top Girls – Sydney Theatre Company).
I sat down to read this play, and was transported to a bittersweet place thick with the longing and nostalgia of young adulthood. I’d stumbled across a magic 3D play that I could hear and taste and see my own story in. We have a startlingly moving and funny text of gentle teenage naiveté – a mess of a life that aches to be lived, a young woman navigating the comedy, tragedy and lawless wild west of not only of puberty, but the upside down world of parents regressed into children that need care.
– Sheridan Harbridge, Director
