EDUCATION ONLY PERFORMANCE

Amphibian Written by Duncan Graham Term 2 Friday 11 June 2021 10am & 1pm

An epic story of displacement, loss and adapting to different worlds.

Chloe and Hassan are under suspicion for stealing money while feeding the class Axolotl. Sent outside to work out who’s responsible, the unlikely pair find they have something in common. Each of them has been forced by their parents to leave their respective homes and face life as the new kid at school. As their personal histories are revealed, Chloe hears the incredible first-hand account of an Afghan boy who’s travelled alone, thousands of kilometres across land and sea, for a better life. Is the discovery of Hassan’s back story enough to save him from Chloe’s desire to protect her position in her new-found friendship group?

“A must-see work for teenagers and adults that could start some important conversations.” - INDAILY

“A wholeheartedly entertaining and humanising experience. This is a compassionate piece of theatre told with a punch.” - GLAM ADELAIDE

“I left wishing every 12-year-old in the country could see this show.” - KIDS IN ADELAIDE
