Arts Hub praised playwright Emily Sheehan’s writing as “sparkling and fresh, and urgently of the now”.
Caitlin and Oscar used to be mates, but not anymore. Six months after the death of Oscar’s brother/Caitlin’s boyfriend, Caitlin and Oscar haven’t spoken. These days, Caitlin texts boys to meet her in public parks while Oscar eats his lunch in the teacher’s staffroom. But when Caitlin sends Oscar a text message, he comes running. After receiving a medical diagnosis that morning, Caitlin is scared. She convinces an unsuspecting Oscar to run away with her. To go “full on missing”. Hell’s Canyon is a new coming of age drama about friendship and rebellion that directly connects to a youth audience.
