The Queensland Conservatorium 3rd year actors present their final play, a darkly riotous, superbly fast-talking adventure. Adapted from the Booker Prize-winning novel, Ronder’s Vernon God Little was nominated for the 2007 Olivier Award for Best New Play.

Vernon Little is fifteen years old and lives with his mother in Martirio, a flea-bitten Texan town. His best friend just massacred sixteen of their classmates before killing himself. The town wants vengeance and turns its sights on Vernon, who is arrested at the start of the story.

Trigger warning: contains coarse language, sensitive content and references to suicide which may be triggering for some people.

Edges is a song-cycle about burgeoning adults asking classic coming-of-age questions. Written by Tony-nominated Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dogfight, James and the Giant Peach) in their sophomore year at the University of Michigan, this charming, witty and honest examination of adulthood explores what happens when we are teetering on the edges of our lives. The songs cover such universal issues as love, commitment, identity and meaning. Characters deal with confronting emotions, escaping expectations and deciphering complicated relationships.
