Next year? There are a lot of options- Keep studying, of course- A lot of options- No one recommends I stop- What are the options? I think I’m just going to- Save up and go travelling- Apply for the top three- Uni- That’s what I’m aiming for- Right now? Mum wants me to- I don’t really know if I’m even going to want to- Nothing too intense, you know- It’s all a bit- I ‘m going to move out and then…I just need to finish year 12 and then I can- All a bit up in the air at the moment.

Canberra Youth Theatre’s (CYT) Company Ensemble presents an original work by Melbourne playwright Laura Lethlean.  Fading has been developed collaboratively drawing on the cast’s individual and ensemble responses to transitioning from childhood to adulthood. It explores the effect of the expectations that are placed upon the individual, the pressure that comes with becoming an adult, and the grief of the childhood left behind. The work is post dramatic in its form, using metaphor to convey the pressures felt at this age and how we navigate these.
