AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Following on the success of Zeal’s 2011 collection featuring The Stones, Burnt and Taboo, this collection features two new plays in Zeal Theatre’s repertoire: King Hit and Lucky Country.

'King Hit opens at Tula’s birthday party. Heaps of people arrive, the music is pumping and everyone is having a great time. When Tula's dad leaves, things change. Two boys start to argue and what begins as a bit of fun quickly escalates into an alcohol-fuelled fight, reaching a shocking climax. Blending elements of naturalism, expressionism and docu-drama, King Hit questions the dynamic of violence as it touches the lives of young people.

'In Lucky Country, a new student arrives at Cook Vale High School. He’s from Syria, he is a refugee, and he’s spent time on Nauru. Two boys in his class concoct a ‘special welcome’, triggering a chain of events that engulfs the whole community. Lucky Country looks at contemporary racism, global politics and the role of the media.'
