We’re celebrating our 18th birthday at Young & Hungry with another sweet-as festival season at Bats Theatre.
With the 2012 Mayan end of the world nigh, it’s survival of the fittest, with three plays about outwitting, outplaying and outlasting the competition.
6:30pm: Flash by Kate Morris, directed by David Lawrence, pits ethics around cyber bullying against our growing fascination with technology and social media. Shoot 'n' share gadget generation beware - a photo is a photo is a photo... until it's not. A group of five girls find themselves in the confines of the principal’s office. Little do they know, the motley crew are about to be given the third degree by 'indie' Finlay, the Tecol-fresh Media Studies teacher, whose 'Dead Poet Society' dreams and off-the-curriculum assignment has gone pear-shaped, resulting in the abrupt departure of a student from roll call.
8pm: Gameplan by Dan Bain, directed by Mel Camp, attacks virtual gameplay psychology within a group of broke gamer friends dead set on getting to the World Cyber Games in Korea. They search for a victimless crime in order to finance their trip, plotting to rob a pawn and cash loan centre in the belief that they are only run by thieves and loan sharks. Once they get under way they find that they are out of their depth both physically and emotionally, and that real life violence is a very different proposition to video game violence.
9:30pm: Cover Story by Adam Goodall, directed by Leo Gene Peters, investigates increasingly suspicious (and violent) deaths within a school. Nothing out-of-the-ordinary ever happens at Wellington's prestigious Arrowhead High School, and that's just the way Tracey Aldridge, the ambitious head photographer for Arrowhead's student newspaper, doesn't like it. But when arrogant new student Daniel Ward barrels into Tracey's life with wild claims of murders and cover-ups within Arrowhead's student body, Tracey is thrust into an investigation where the money shot could come at a steep price...
Young and Hungry is an annual theatre festival created by young people with the intention of making accessible, unique and completely new theatre.
A season pass is a bargain, letting you experience the whole festival for less.
