This is Edna. She’s 14, and she’s in love with Harry. There’s just one problem:
Harry is in ‘True Connection’ – the biggest boyband in the world. When True Connection announce a tour stop in Edna’s city she realises this is her one chance to convince Harry of their destiny, and she’ll do anything – ANYTHING – in the name of true love…
Fangirls is a thrilling new musical by a barnstorming young talent called Yve Blake, who is also playing Edna. She’s joined by a cast of new young faces with brilliant voices for a show that’s Beyoncé concert-meets religious revival, with a wicked sense of humour, about love and other big feelings in the age of the internet.
This show is for anyone who’s ever been a fan. It’s especially for anyone who is or has ever been a girl with a screaming stadium of feelings inside them. It’s dreamy, wild, and hyperalive. We crawled over broken glass to bring it to Belvoir.
Hear Yve speak about the development of the show in this recording of her speech at the 2019 TEDxSYDNEY conference (beginning 6:15:13).
A co-production with Queensland Theatre, Brisbane Festival in association with Australian Theatre for Young People
