Beginning in February 2019, drama students from Gympie State High, James Nash State High and St Patrick’s Catholic College in grades 9 – 12 worked with Brisbane based actor, film maker, director and playwright Zac Boulton.

Students worked collaboratively to bring these bizarre but often surreal stories to life through drama, dance and music. The issue of balance emerged and more specifically the question,
