Australian Theatre for Young People present
M.ROCK
By Lachlan Philpott

The generation gap just got tighter

M.Rock is a magical new play, based on a true story, about the enduring joys of music, dancing and self-discovery.

Lachlan Philpott is one of the country's hottest writers, rocketing into the Sydney theatre landscape with the success ofSilent Disco for atyp and Griffin Theatre Company in 2011. In his distinctive language, Philpott charts the fortunes of 18-year-old Tracy and her grandmother Mabel. Tracy has just finished school, she's bought a round-the-world ticket and is flying away to soak up experience. By contrast, Mabel is stable. She plays piano for The Players, knits for the African appeal and looks after Hilda's cat.

When Tracy misses her plane home, Mabel sets off on a quest to find her granddaughter. But what she finds is her inner DJ.

A co-production with atyp and directed by Fraser Corfield,M.Rock features Valerie Bader (Australia Day) as the intrepid septuagenarian, as well as a live DJ pumping the energy of the dancefloor into the veins of the theatre.

Enjoy a delightfully fresh, inter-generational theatre experience that challenges taboos and assumptions about age.
