Australian Theatre for Young People


Heres a writing shout out for your Friday. Congratulations to ATYP Alumni, Jordan Shea, who was recently announced as a Writing NSW Varuna Fellowship recipient Jordan won the Fellowship for a writer under 30 for his play Theyre not listening. His work explores themes of returning to place, surviving in an institution as a queer person of colour, and having care as the compass of your life.

The judges described his piece as a fast paced, energy filled play exploring queer navigations of church, state, knowledge, and family. This young playwrights words fly off the page, their concepts, and relationships either hitting you in the gut or singing into your ear. In both instances, this exciting work is well on the way to the place all good plays are inhabit- the emotive, embodied stage where experience and hope collide.

We cant wait to see what Jordan does over the next year with Writing NSW.
