Testing Nothing is their story (our youth) - literally.

Testing Nothing has been developed through the SAY IT OUT LOUD program. It is about creative exploration, about resilience in trying different things, recognising it hasn’t worked and having the courage to accept this and be excited to try something else.  It is the collaborative process where trust, truth and full commitment to the story, are vital.

The play is a black comedy set in the present, Christmas Day.  Based on the true story of Alaine’s family who emigrated from Scotland to Australia it is confrontational and insightful in how it deals with issues around alcoholism and the difficulty of a son coming out to his father.  But essentially this is a Christmas play both poignant and heartfelt.

Please note: contains adult themes and occasional course language.
