Everyone remembers the moment they became a teenager. Danika Hart — or Dani, as she prefers — is certainly unlikely to forget it. It's her 13th birthday party, and she's caught up in a mix of an exploding cake, a dream-like visit to a world that's both surreal and too close to home, and her best friend Miranda.
So unravels Sunnytown as it takes a journey through young Dani's subconscious and explores the consequences of choosing to cope when change is your only hope. As anyone who has ever been a teen will no doubt recall, the mind of a youth on the cusp of maturity can be a dark and beguiling place.
As written by emerging playwright Krystal Sweedman, Sunnytown forms part of the La Boite Indie season. The program aims to encourage fresh talent and nurture a sustainable independent theatre culture in Brisbane — and you can do your part by supporting great new plays like this, too.
