NORPA and Southern Cross University present an Australian Theatre For Young People (ATYP) production
Nina is 16 years old, good at school, has a job a the cinema and one of the best singing voices around. But none of that is important. She needs a place to live. Living with her Aunty in an overcrowded house, things aren’t going well, and it’s getting complicated.
Erica is 16 and the new girl in town. Her Dad’s in the RAAF and the family’s just moved to Katherine. She’s lived all over Australia and every time she makes somewhere home, she moves again. She’s so used to being an outsider, she’s stopped trying to fit in.
The only thing Nina and Erica have in common is the music they listen to. Sometimes that’s enough.
“…a beautifully-calibrated play, pitched perfectly to the adolescent ear and with a compassion for its characters…this is a play for young people, but it’s an important play for everyone.”
