    '"You've got to give Duncan credit, it took most people ages to realise the lederhosen was painted on and not real clothing..."

    'Jake Black is almost your average teen, fresh from high-school he jumps at the chance to move from Hobart to Adelaide, with the vague plan of taking engineering at the University. Like many of his generation who travel from home, he turns to Facebook to keep in touch with family and friends. If only his mother wouldn't call him every day to check on his diabetes. Or use his sister's account to spy on his activities. Perhaps this is why his parents were so eager for him to attend one of the city's residential colleges, where he is surrounded by two hundred students who can keep watch. However, college is more adventurous than Jake's parents bargained for... Ignoring the inevitable medical impacts of his new life style Jake struggles managing his mother and his new freedom, with mixed results on the public Facebook platform.

    'A combination of short story written in status updates and posts, and a one-act play for small and large casts, Jake's Page is a comic yet heart-breaking tale of a young, type one diabetic and his Facebook Page.'
