Hell's Canyon
Emily Sheehan

“Sometimes there are things you can’t forget about, even when

you try. They just pop into your brain outta nowhere. Walking

home, or in line at the canteen, or when we were making out

before. It smacks you right in the face. Right outta nowhere. I

don’t know what’s so wrong about remembering.”

Caitlin and Oscar are hiding out in a motel in the middle of the

Australian outback. No one knows they’re there, and

seventeen-year-old Caitlin won’t tell fifteen-year-old Oscar

why she’s running. They’re out of money and the only thing

they have on them is a rare and valuable graphic novel, Hell’s

Canyon. But Oscar doesn’t want to sell it. Not for this. Not for

anything.

Hell’s Canyon is a play that celebrates everything magical

about being a young person, the tenacity of teenage friendship,

and our ability to transcend tragedy by reaching for the

sublime.

Cast : 1F, 1M
