Last night, audiences were captivated by Grammar girls in the Year 9 and 10 Drama Production, who performed Matthew Whittet’s play, Girl Asleep.
Girl Asleep is the final play of Whittet’s teenage stories trilogy. This coming of age story is poignant, funny, warm and full of angst; it is an emotional rollercoaster symbolic of what teenagers may experience as they head into adulthood.
Greta’s life is a rollercoaster. Add in the dynamics of her overbearing family and a party she does not want, she is taken on a surreal journey where she blossoms from a shy wallflower to finding her true self. Set in suburban Australia in the 1970s, this play is bold, bright and filled with personal empowerment. Girl Asleep will be showing until Saturday 2 November. Tickets are still available for the Friday and Saturday night performances.
