Information: www.myspace.com/ ashfield youth theatre .......................................................................... FIONA BRADY Ashfield youth theatre has a new production about bullying. Cast are Laura, Eliza, Julia, Jeff, Dan and Eloise. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP260459 CYBER bullying is the theme of Ashfield Youth Theatre's latest production, Chatroom, which opens this Friday night. Directed by Drummmoyne's Laura Scrivanco, the play follows six 15-year-olds who hang out online. ''Online communities and social networking are investigated in this award- winning play that looks at the ramifications of cyber bullying,'' Laura Scrivanco said. ''It cleverly deals with issues of bullying, depression, suicide and identity without feeling like an 'issues' play.'' Scrivanco is a director, writer and performance maker whose directing credits include A View of Concrete (B Sharp theatre company) and Stars (Australian Theatre for Young People). She has been working on this project with 21 young people, including six from the Inner West, since January. The group were premiering their show for students at Concord High School. ''We are excited about testing out the show on the students at Concord High as we believe these students will strongly connect with the subject matter,'' Scrivanco said. ''Most kids these days are experienced with online social networking, and this play captures the reality of this environment.'' Chatroom was written by the Irish playwright Enda Walsh and has been described by The Times (UK) as a ''computer-age Lord of the Flies''. This production is presented as part of Youth Week.
