Explore the high highs and low lows of being a teenage girl in a small town with Blueberry Play by Novocastrian playwright Ang Collins.

Being 17 is awkward. Having to take care of your sick dad when you’re 17 is another story. Especially when he keeps trying to shave his eyebrows off. 

Blueberry Play is a vivid and heart-bursting monologue that explores the high highs and the low lows of being a teenage girl in a small town. From the public pool to the locker rooms at school to back home where things are just a bit topsy-turvy, this is an Aussie coming-of-age story with a refreshing twist.

From the creative team that brought you Spewy, the sold-out smash-hit of New Annual 2023, Blueberry Play is a beautifully intimate story from award winning Novocastrian playwright Ang Collins.
