Escape with this compelling and turbulent story of three emerging adults swimming against the tide of change. Blending choice versus fate, CUSP is an intimate experience in Theatre 2 and a love story to young people, the landscape of Australia’s Top End, and a reminder of the inherent privilege of being able to make your own choices.
How do you move into the future, when your past keeps dragging you backwards?
Elvis wants Rosie. Rosie wants to escape. Maddie doesn’t know what the hell she wants; but it sure isn’t this.
While Rosie balances the needs of community with her own life dreams, Elvis juggles a life of crime with a tougher path into the straight-and-narrow, and Maddie faces life as a single parent unless she aborts her unborn child.
CUSP juxtaposes the Northern Territory’s vast Top End landscape with the turbulent lives of three emerging adults as they swim against the tide of irrevocable change. Balancing choice versus fate in a world where, as Elvis observes, ‘Some people just get better choices than others.’
