The crack where the light gets in

The creators of the powerful and deeply affecting theatre piece, Faultline, share with Peter Dunne the electric thrill, and the weight of responsibility which come along with making a show based around true, and emotionally affecting, events.

We are standing in the hallway of a building on Parnell Square. It’s a chilly night. There is the palpable buzz of excitement that usually accompanies being an audience member for a show created by ANU. The smiling woman on the ticket desk receives a notification on her phone. It’s time.

Our already small group is divided. My group is directed to make our way down the staircase leading off from the hallway and down into the basement. As we do so, an out-of-breath, excited young man apologises as he pushes through our group to run ahead. It takes a second to notice he is dressed differently to us, his fashion decidedly ‘80s. He knocks rapidly on the big metal door at the end of the staircase. It swings open. Then he, and we, are ushered into Faultline.

About GCN

Welcome to one of our personal favourites - the annual Youth Issue. Inside, we hear from the next generation of LGBT+ change-makers who speak about the issues that matter to them. There’s an inspiring photo piece on the recent School Strikes For Climate Change by the wonderful Babs Daly who also captured the cover image. We look at an LGBT+ asylum seeker who entered the Direct Provision system at age 13 and there’s an essential piece on the rising numbers of homeless LGBT+ youth. We talk about the need for alcohol-free spaces for younger LGBT+ folk while inside you’ll also find the results of the EMIS survey to improve the health of gay, bi and MSM. On the entertainment side we have interviews with comedian Hannah Gadsby, the creators of the startling theatre show Faultline, and there’s a fun introduction to the next generation of drag artists. With the youth of this country demanding change, we can rest assured that if the contributors to this issue are leading the charge, the status quo is about to get a jolt. Enjoy.
