The Chapel, the Fire and the Dead Cat by Madelaine Nunn

An act of terror? Work of the divine? Or merely an accident?

Lights in the Park by Alexander Lee-Rekers

Word is that there's a party in the park tonight... what could possibly go wrong?

Bathory Begins by Emme Hoy and Gretel Vella

Girls vs. boys. Public vs. private... And an undead woman of the night. Things were never going to end well.

Impending Everyone by Michael Andrew Collins

"This cannot be stopped; your history is impending. Everyone will know tomorrow, by the end of lunch, who you really are..."

Compass by Jessica Bellamy

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?

THEMES: Survival, Good vs. Evil, Horror
LENGTH: 90 Minutes
NO.OF CHARACTERS: 14
ATYP COMMISSION YEAR: 2017

Year 10 Art teacher Mrs Bathory is most definitely a reincarnation of the sadistic, serial-killer Countess, Erzebet Báthory. It’s pretty obvious to her class of seven —yes, seven — girls. The last remaining survivors. When the students in 10F decide to pull the prank of the century and destroy the beast for good, there’s just one thing that stands in their way. The private schoolboys from Judas Gents have arrived, and they don’t feel so comfortable with murder.

LENGTH: 90 Minutes
NO. OF CHARACTERS: 9
ATYP COMMISSION YEAR: 2016

Someone at Elia’s high school has gained access to all the students’ browser histories, messages and metadata. They plan to release them. What do they want? Nothing more than everybody at the high school finding out who they, and everyone around them, really is. But the students can’t let this happen. They have secrets that can’t come out, and less than one day to stop their impending release.

 

 


 

 

Compass by Jessica Bellamy

THEMES: Isolation, Survival, Entitlement
LENGTH: 60 Minutes
NO.OF CHARACTERS: 6
ATYP COMMISSION YEAR: 2012

The 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.
