Artscape New Voices Programme 2019 presents a Staged Reading.

Five teenagers get into a car accident on their way from their Matric Dance to the after party. The car has gone off the road and crashed into a tree in a dark and remote part of town. One teen is thrown from the vehicle and is badly injured. Disoriented and injured, the other four must figure out a way to get help for their friend and themselves. But, with all of their cellphones damaged or trapped in the wreckage, and no landmarks or signs of humanity visible in the dark, their options become increasingly bleak. Tensions flare, nerves unravel and the teens become distracted by their frustrations and anger. While they are out looking for help, a stranger discovers their unattended friend, steals the teens’ belongings from the wreckage and rapes her. All hope of finding help disappears as the teens return to the scene and discover what has happened. Their dreams of a fun and exciting Matric Dance After Party have turned into feelings of limbo, fear, desperation and guilt…who or what is to blame for this disaster?

Directed by Lee-Ann Van Rooi
