Rattling the Keys
27 June 2020
Winner of the 2018 State Theatre Company of South Australia and Flinders University Junior Young Playwrights’ Award, Rattling the Keys follows five teenagers living in the small rural town of Coober Pedy.
Struggling with isolation and lack of opportunities, and with little money or education, they turn to crystal methamphetamine. During a long oppressive heatwave, a teenage boy is murdered next door and Teddy and Kai, both under the influence of Ice, think they may be responsible. Knowing the police are undergoing an investigation, the five teenagers know they only have a few hours before the cops knock on their door.
Rattling the Keys explores themes such as drug/alcohol addiction, isolation and mental illness in 70 minutes.
