Description

Sara West‘s The Trolleys was the  winner of the 2014 ATYP Foundation Commission Award. This captivating play has got a big heart and asks big questions.

SYNOPSIS

The cover of a manhole starts to move and a beautiful glowing jar is pushed over the edge. A small hand follows, then an arm – a girl pulls herself to the surface. She picks up the jar, holds it to her chest and looks to us. Looks right at us.

The Trolleys are a gang of six living on the outskirts of the city. They need their light jars to survive the dangerous place they live in but their lights are fading fast and no one knows why. It’s up to Savage Kim and her fiery, soulful, smart, skittish (and sometimes silly) gang to embark on a dangerous journey to figure it out. All they know is that they don’t have much time and if they fail they too will disappear. They will be Dusters.

PRODUCTION HISTORY

The Trolleys was commissioned by the ATYP and first performed in Sydney at ATYP Studio 1 at the Wharf in November, 2015.
