THE COMPREHENSIVE A-Z OF MISSING PERSONS AUSTRALIA

An exploration of the quiet crisis of Missing Persons.

Each year 54,000 people go missing in Australia, this figure is growing. Why do so many Australians go missing? Do they want to be found? THE COMPREHENSIVE A-Z OF MISSING PERSONS AUSTRALIA explores the ‘why’ of this issue and gives voice to 800 missing persons listed in the Australian Missing Persons Register.

WAYTCo has commissioned 23-year old award-winning playwright and company alumni Grace Chow to write this ambitious new play. Directed by Artistic Director Amelia Burke, A-Z will star a large cast of youth performers – some of Boorloo’s most dedicated emerging actors. Together the cast and creative team will work across disciplines, utilising physical theatre, verbatim, and multimedia.

Inherent in the work is a call to better look out for one another, as family members, friends and neighbours. Join us in addressing this unspoken crisis, one that disproportionately affects our young people.

Season: 19-30 November 2024

Venue: The Liberty Theatre

Run Time: 70mins

Ticket link available August!

This new Australian play was seeded in WAYTCo’s inaugural 2024 Summer Stage, an annual new works incubator designed to help identify ideas to take through to main production. Banner image, by Georgi Ivers, capturing work-in-development.
