Tasmanian Theatre Company presents


How do young Australians deal with the deluge of information about and exposure to sexual exploitation, refugees, unemployment, violence, bullying, self-worth and cultural identity. From where do they get their information? Who can they trust? Who should they believe? What shapes their opinions and then their actions in response to these issues? What happens when a collective decision is made to rise up and do something about injustice? What is the nature of contemporary protest? Inspired by real events, UPRISING is a bold, raw and fragile exploration of reactions to contemporary issues by young Australians in a powerful, reflective context which puts the spotlight on the thinking, actions and consciousness of the next generation.

With a large cast of young performers these complementary plays by two of Australia’s most respected and prolific playwrights will amuse and discomfort audiences as only great drama can do.

Writers – Patricia Cornelius and Melissa Reeves     Director – Christine Best

Cast – Andy Aisbett, Victoria Bremner, Yvette Dragar, Felix Jarvis, Sophia Matelli, Benedicta Mc Geown, Jacqueline Morrison, David Ovens, Louis Parkinson, Katie Robertson and Anna Williamson
