Growing Up is Hard to Do
Thu, 16th to 19th May '24 in 11 weeks
by Miranda Michalowski
19-year-old June is a first-year student on her university swim team, counting every calorie in the lead-up to her big meet. Her 21-year-old sister, Anna, spends her nights going home with strangers from nightclubs and tells herself that she couldn't be happier. Both sisters keep their shame hidden. But when their mother Dawn announces she is moving in with her boyfriend and Anna and June must move out, their secret lives begin to unravel.
Jopuka Alumni Miranda Michalowski's Young Bodies/Somebody's is a sensitive portrayal of a fragile time for many young women coming into their own. It uses contrasting monologues to create a sense of unity yet disconnect between a family fractured by divorce, and sheds light on their individual problems.
Young Bodies/Somebody's was first staged at the Flight Path Theatre in Marrickville, Sydney, (Gadigal Country) from May 21st-28th, 2022.
