Cyberbile, Alana Valentine , single work drama

'Cyberbile is a candid, moving and sometimes shocking glimpse into the online world of today's teen generation. Based on interviews conducted by PLC students with teachers, parents and their fellow students, Cyberbile is a verbatim-based drama which speaks from and to the hearts of a Australia's young adults. Sometimes frightening, more often courageously funny, Cyberbile is a play for any parent who is worried about their child's relationship to the online community or any young person who wants to understand how to survive the bullying that technology can uniquely unleash.'

Grounded, Alana Valentine , single work drama

'Against the backdrop of one of the most intriguing events in Newcastles recent history, the grounding of the Pasha Bulker, we meet Farrah, a young Novocastrian with a fascination for Newcastles industrial port, a fascination none of her peers share or comprehend.

Yet when a storm forces the ship on Nobbys Beach and the worlds attention turns to the harbour she knows so well, the impact on Farrahs own reality is not what she expects. Farrahs obsession with shipping and bulk carriers allows audiences to explore universal themes of isolation, belonging and identity, and that time in your life when the obsessions of childhood get grounded in reality.

Tantrum Theatre and Australias flagship youth theatre company Australian Theatre for Young People have co-commissioned nationally recognised playwright Alana Valentine to create this new work which celebrates Newcastles identity and the significance of the working harbour to Newcastles culture.'
