Australian theatre royalty playing a bunch of teenagers.

You’re in for a treat.

Matthew Whittet (CinderellaOld Man) is the true original mind of Australian theatre – actor, writer, muse, inventor of marvels, scribe of human beauty and lover of oddity. Seventeen is the play he’s been getting ready to write for a long time. It’s about the cusp of adulthood, and it has been specially, like really specially, written for a rollcall of the country’s great senior actors. To be precise:

Peter Carroll, Maggie Dence, Judi Farr, John Gaden, Barry Otto. The lot of them.

These venerables play a group of teenagers (!) drinking, singing, dancing, gabbling, worrying and maybe even pashing (!!) their way through their last night of childhood and their first night of adulthood.

Funny, immature, wise and a little bit but quite beautifully sad, Seventeen is about the size of life.
