Go to Normal

20-23 May 2020

Poppy has developed a tic. A twitch. A spasm. It spreads through her body, then her group of school friends and before long, the whole town. Who or what is to blame? And how are they going to fix it? Inspired by the true story of ‘the town that caught Tourette’s’, this provocative and critically acclaimed Australian play raises questions about what it means to fit in, the viral nature of mass hysteria, and the pressures on young women fighting for agency. In the entitled pockets of a sparkling city, what does it take for a teenage girl to fit in? What does it cost to be normal?
