Triptych - A Trilogy of New Works
ActewAGL presents a Canberra Youth Theatre production.Triptych – A Trilogy of New Works explores the world of pressure and success. From our youngest moments to our dying day we all encounter pressure in our lives, to be strong, to win, to make the right decisions, the forge the right path, to be successful – but what does ‘being successful’ even mean and is survival alone enough?
Canberra Youth Theatre (CYT) has teamed up with 3 of contemporary theatre’s most dynamic writers to explore the ways young people deal with expectations and pressure.
AWGIE award winning and internationally produced playwright, Lachlan Philpott has worked with our senior artists aged 18-25yrs. Griffin Theatre Associate Playwright and Rodney Seaborn Playwrighting Award winner, Jessica Bellamy has collaborated with our teen artists aged 13 – 17yrs; and Canberra playwright Olivia Hewson has worked with all of CYT’s young actors aged 7 – 12 yrs.
Each playwright has worked closely with CYT’s emerging artists in the development of a new one act play centered around issues that place pressure on young people in their lives.
