Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP) is proud to announce the return of Lachlan Philpott’s hit inter-generational story M.Rock 8 years after it first hit the stage.

Based on the true story of Mamy Rock, Tracey is 18 and a little impulsive. She’s meant to start a nursing degree in March, but right now she just wants to dance all night. So, she heads off on a European holiday (remember those?), clutching the lucky rabbit’s foot her grandmother gave her.

Mabel is your typical grandmother. She plays piano for The Players and knits for the Africa appeal. But when Tracey skips her flight home and doesn’t get in touch, Mabel leaves her stable life to go find her. So what if she’s never been further than Canberra? She ends up in Berlin, and before long she’s over her jetlag, clubbing until sunrise with people who seize life with both hands. As the nights go on, Tracey and Mabel keep missing each other, but they’re finding themselves.                

Directed by ATYP Artistic Director Fraser Corfield and written by Australian playwright Lachlan Philpott, Valerie Bader (NToP’s Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam, STC’s Children of the Sun, TV’s All Saints) makes a return as Mabel after burning the house down in the original 2014 sell-out production with Sydney Theatre Company. The show also features Venus Guy Trap, a live DJ bringing the energy of a Berlin dancefloor right into the theatre.     

Whether you’re a grandparent or a grandkid, young or simply young at heart, this life-affirming production will make you glad you put on your pearls.
