Blueberry Play

14-17 August 2024
Sharply witty, beautifully sad, and intimately relatable ★★★★ Fringe Feed
There’s a refreshing sharpness to Collins’ playwriting voice; she’s a talent to watch out for. If we’re lucky, we’ll be seeing a lot more of her work in the future. Time Out Sydney
Blueberry Play is wonderful to watch, and would be just as satisfying, I suspect, to read for the poetry of its text… Highly Recommended. Seesaw Magazine

Upstage at the Playhouse presents Blueberry Play

Produced by Lingua Franca
Written by Ang Collins

Being 17 is awkward. Having to take care of your sick dad when you’re 17 is another story. Especially when he keeps trying to shave his eyebrows off. 

Blueberry Play is a vivid and heart-bursting monologue that explores the high highs and the low lows of being a teenage girl in a small town. From the public pool to the locker rooms at school to back home where things are just a bit topsy-turvy, this is an Aussie coming-of-age story with a refreshing twist.

From the creative team that brought you Spewy, the sold-out smash-hit of New Annual 2023, Blueberry Play is a beautifully intimate story from award winning Novocastrian playwright Ang Collins.
