Title: This Was Urgent Yesterday
Author: AYTP
Price: $26.99

This Was Urgent Yesterday is a collection of single actor scripts written by and for young people from regional Australia.

These plays celebrate and explore the complex, dynamic, courageous, frustrating, joyful and sometimes mundane heart that is regional Australia. The performance pieces reflect the landscape, attitudes and experiences of regional Australia in the here and now.

This Was Urgent Yesterday is a joint project of Country Arts SA, Carclew and the Australian Theatre for Young People. Over eight days emerging regional writers aged 18-26 from across Australia gathered to learn, connect and write, mentored by leading Australian playwrights Caleb Lewis, Mary Anne Butler and Emily Steel. Each participant generated and refined a short monologue for teenage performers.

Writing Place was established in response to consultation with young people and teachers from regional South Australia who expressed concern over the lack of scripts for teenagers that reflect the lives and circumstances of regional young people in the here and now.
