‘For Real’: A Teen’s Mind Is Chaotic And Powerful.

A Teen’s Mind Is Chaotic And Powerful.

Given no voice nor control, Jess is forced to consume the audience into her deep psychosis. ‘For Real’ is an innovative piece depicting the reality of teenagers minds. Jess’ mind is played by 9 actors. Each actor symbolises a different facet of her thought pattern. All parts come together to overwhelm Jess and the audience creating an intense and enlightening journey.

‘For Real,’ Original Scripts Youth Company’s debut performance, will be performed at the Toi Whakaari Basement Theatre from the 19th – 21st February at 7.00pm each night. Tickets are available at the door and on www.osyc.co.nz
or on 021 258 4752 Prices: general $15, concession $12 and fringe addict $10.

The Christchurch based Original Scripts Youth Company was formed in 2009 and is composed of 13 students, between 13 and 16 years old, auditioned from the Original Scripts Theatre School who showed creative thinking and incredible potential.

Holly Chappell is 24 years old and will direct the piece. Co-director Thomas Eason, 22, is also the composer of the original score. Sam Steeds is a talented, 19 year old, based in Wellington, who wrote the base script.

The goal of OSYC is to push the boundaries of devised youth theatre. All the members of the company have put themselves forward as actors who require a challenge outside the traditional walls the medium can sometimes create. The result is a realistic and stimulating portrayal of teenage life. A phsychoanalytical journey for the cast and audience.

The fringe debut of Christchurch's Original Scripts Youth Company, "FOR REAL" shows a stylistic depiction of the surging, spitting chaos of teenage inner life through dance, song and speech.
