Compass

by Jessica Bellamy

“Compass is really brilliant! One of the best parts about it is that it’s incredibly tense.” — Bill Blake, Time Out, October 2013.

Description

he teacher is missing, there isn’t enough food, it’s getting dark and no one mentioned that the toilets out here are nothing but holes in the ground.

For a small group of students, it seems their grade seven camp couldn’t get much worse, that is until a stranger appears.

Compass is a comedy with a sting in its tail, which asks how far we’ll go to hold on to what we think we deserve. If we are barely managing to take care of ourselves, how do we treat an outsider? Is our moral compass set in stone, or can we get lost?
