The Trials presented by Canberra Youth Theatre

Textured divide




19 - 28 May


The Courtyard Studio
Canberra Theatre Centre

Join Canberra Youth Theatre as they perform Dawn King’s post apocalytic piece ‘The Trials’ at the Courtyard Studio.

The near future. The heat is stifling. The air is unbreathable. The climate emergency is escalating and there’s going to be a reckoning as those responsible are held to account for the damage done. The jurors? Teenagers.

A jury of young people weigh up the fate of adult defendants, each of whom attempts to defend their carbon footprint and its devastating consequences. But are the jury delivering justice, or just taking revenge?

This performance is supported by Canberra Theatre Centre, as part of a commitment to nurturing the young and emerging artists of the ACT.
