Sometimes there’s no scarier place to be than inside your own mind…
Sebastian is a terminally unpopular fifteen-year-old with an overactive imagination and an obsession with anime and death. His only friend, Claryssa, is an emo, Wiccan art-freak barely one rung higher on the social ladder.
What starts as just another night drinking down at the cricket nets, soon gives way to an ecstatic vision that leaves Sebastian unconscious, Claryssa missing without explanation and their friendship in ruins. The next morning, Sebastian wakes up with a mysterious moth in a jar by his bed, a calling to save the souls of all humankind and a desperate need to reach Claryssa. And so begins the Passion of Sebastian…
Fantasy and reality intermingle with dangerous consequences in this gripping play about friendship, adolescence, mental illness and loss. Written with a dark wit that is ultimately after your heart, Rachel Chant directs this bold work from one of Australia's leading playwrights.
