A Brown’s Mart Theatre Co-production
Elvis wants Rosie. Rosie wants to escape. Maddie doesn’t know what the hell she wants, but it sure isn’t this.
While Rosie balances the needs of community with her own life dreams, Elvis juggles a life of crime with a tougher path into the straight-and-narrow, and Maddie faces life as a single parent unless she aborts her unborn child.
CUSP juxtaposes the Northern Territory’s vast Top End landscape with the turbulent lives of three emerging adults as they swim against the tide of irrevocable change. Balancing choice versus fate in a world where, as Elvis observes, “Some people just get better choices than others.”
ATYP is proud to have commissioned this urgent new work by award-winning playwright Mary Anne Butler.
Warnings: Adult themes, frequent coarse language, descriptions of sexual acts, references to trauma and self harm.
