Shack – Marian St Theatre for Young People

July 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

A captivating adventure story: Shack awaits!

Antarctica. A blizzard. School kids are stranded in a shack, on the bottom of the world, with a sinister force circling outside…

Our young explorers, in the ghostly footsteps of Ernest Shackleton, question their place in the natural and social order of the world as the limits of their courage are pushed into uncharted waters. A hypothermic flurry of comedy and thriller, Shack explores the territory between teen anxiety and teen invincibility. Young people are being called on to lead like never before, but how do they learn to step up, when sometimes just existing is hard enough?

Shack by George Kemp (winner of the 2020 Junior ATYP Foundation Commission) is back to explore the power of nature and the nature of power in this adventure story for the Greta Thunberg generation.

5 star reviews:

‘George Kemp’s Shack is a brilliant new piece of writing for young people. Audiences of all ages will adore it. I was simply blown away when I saw it.’ Joshua Maxwell, Artistic Director, Jopuka Productions.

‘Beautiful writing…and performances by young people that explode off the stage with energy and relevance. Shack tells an important story, important to today’s young people, from their own point of view.’ Lily Hayman, Associate Producer at Shopfront.

Creative team – Writer George Kemp, Director Madeleine Diggins.

Recommended for ages 8+. Duration 75mins.
