Young and Hungry

From Upbeat, 1:20 pm on 14 July 2017

Dunedin playwright and writing mentor Emily Duncan likes to go to dark places. For her PhD in Theatre Studies thesis she wrote a play about a former tuberculosis sanatorium and borstal in Otago. Most of her stories revolve around dysfunctional relationships. Her script for the Young and Hungry festival is about a TV reality show host who gets more than he bargained for when two of his show’s former contestants invade his celebrity perfect home to take their revenge on him.
