Fragments by Maura Pierlot

Concert or Performance

23 Oct 2019 to 27 Oct 2019

Raw and real. Follow eight young people as they try to find hope and their sense of self in the face of adversity.

Eight young people navigating high school and beyond, each struggling to hold on – to family, to friends, to a piece of themselves. Each presenting their best selves to others, plagued by self-doubt and self-loathing when alone. Perhaps you know them. The bubbly girl who keeps telling you she’s okay. The high achiever who’s suddenly so intense. The young teen with the fake Instagram account. The boy challenged by communication. Every single day they, and others, are working hard to keep it together. So hard, they don’t see their friends are struggling, too.

Award-winning Canberra-based author and playwright Maura Pierlot fashions a riveting set of eight dramatic, interrelated stories about mental health voiced by young people chipping away at the stigma that prevents many people from seeking help. Returning to The Street director Shelly Higgs leads an exciting ensemble of next-gen Canberra actors in this beautifully realised exploration of connectedness. Theatre that will make you think and get you talking.
