'Moth' by Declan Greene // ATYP
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…
With its strong language, disturbing themes and imagery, this play is not for the faint-hearted, but Moth is a must-see for teenagers, parents and teachers.
