Audiences in Perth are in for a treat this December, with the Western Australian Youth Theatre Company's (WAYTCo) final play in its second trilogy of original work, to be hosted at the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts (PICA) from 7 - 14 December.

Now in its sixth year, this project from WAYTCo challenges a team of 15-26 year olds to develop, produce and perform a play in just six months, with only the play's title as their brief.

The first trilogy - BLOOD, SWEAT, and TEARS - presented tales of dystopian excess, mythological power struggles and corporate pharmaceutical greed.

This second trilogy - EARTH, WIND, and FIRE - has so far explored the boundaries between pretense and reality in the actor/audience and child/adult relationship (EARTH), and a post-apocalyptic tale of literally taking a last breath (WIND).

This final play - FIRE - follows a group of friends as they seek transformation at a Rottnest Island leavers party, a long way from any adult supervision or emergency help, and shows how the events of that single night impacted their lives, in what is shaping up to be yet another excellent production from some of WA's most talented emerging actors, directors, production support and playwrights.

Written by a team of four promising young writers (Jessica Messenger, Geordie Crawley, Ellen O'Connor and Kane Parker) under the guidance of playwriting mentor Hellie Turner, FIRE caught the eye of award-winning emerging actor/director Will O'Mahony; a WAAPA graduate who has worked with every major theatre company in Perth, and the name behind the recent Blue Room Theatre success, Great White.

Supporting Will is a production crew including Patrick James Howe (set and costume design), Will Slade (sound design), Joe Lui (lighting design), Rhianna Perrie (production manager) and eleven actors from across Perth cast for the play through open audition.

WAYTCo Artistic Director Kirsty Hillhouse is 'impressed with the quality and the artistry of the play', and is 'excited to see how it's received by audiences'.

"When you ask nineteen young emerging artists to collaborate on a project to present a coherent play, it's a really big ask,' said Kirsty.

"The play examines post-school rituals - those fleeting windows of hedonism and sexual initiation - and explores love, fate and the inexorable march of time.

"There's been a lot of diplomacy involved... the project is filled with young creative minds."
