Project Opening: October 19, 2016 Area: Lighting, Theatre


A small Australian town, the unexpected death of a boy. The arrival of a stranger… Essie, Beth, Sid and Rabbit are country teenagers looking for a release from their stagnant, isolated lives. They drinks and play, sun baking under the hot Australian sun until the death of a friend forces them to confront questions of loss, faith, friendship and redemption. Samson crackles with an underlife of emotion that the teens struggle to understand, as their dreams and their nightmares become harder to distriguish.¬†At the heart of the play however, is the idea of rebirth amongst the flames…

Samson was presented by VCA theatre and production students.
