Michael Swordfish is back for a return season at the Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP). It will be shown as a double bill production alongside Girls like that by Evan Placey.
Written by playwright Lachlan Philpott and inspired by the lives and concerns of Newington boys today, Michael Swordfish holds a special place for the Black and White cast and crew who have been involved in this production.
“It’s a privilege to share Michael Swordfish with an audience outside of the Newington community,” said Tim Kenzler. Dan Steel agreed and said, “Putting on a play that is a raw and authentic look at the teenage experience is incredibly humbling and I’m really excited to share it with the public.”
On top of this, working at ATYP has given the boys a sense of what it’s like to work in the theatre industry and what it’s like to perform every day over an extended period.
Beginning this Thursday, 10 May, tickets to the season have already sold out. We wish the boys the best of luck for yet another season of Michael Swordfish.
