Riverside presents
By Mary Anne Butler
An Australian Theatre for Young People and Brown’s Mart Theatre co-production

Elvis wants Rosie. Rosie wants to escape. Maddie does not know what the hell she wants, but it sure isn’t this. While Rosie balances the needs of community with her own life dreams, Elvis struggles to move away from a life of crime, and Maddie faces life as a single parent.

Cusp juxtaposes the Northern Territory’s vast Top End landscape with the turbulent lives of three emerging adults as they swim against the tide of irrevocable change. Balancing choice versus fate in a world where, as Elvis observes, “Some people just get better choices than others”.

FYI this production contains frequent coarse language and adult themes including descriptions of sexual acts and references to trauma and self-harm. Recommended for ages 15+

From the Program Coordinator…

Cusp is a beautifully written piece that covers content that is challenging, yet thoughtfully and sensitively dealt with. Fraser Corfield’s (director) understanding of what speaks to young people results in productions that despite difficult subject matter, truly engage and inspire a deeper understanding of the characters and the stories presented. The stunning imagery in this piece merges the story with landscapes of North Australia through descriptive language and narrative devices.
