A smart and intense play from an award-winning Canadian playwright, about the complexities of relationships and community, and the nature of consent.

A new year of high school is full of excitement and potential - but three teens didn't expect it to bring such a dark change to their lives.

After spending a summer reinventing herself in Paris, Emma is ready for her new life to start, while her best friend Lily is eager for them to reconnect. Lily throws a last-minute party fuelled by alcohol and Instagram, which leads to a long-awaited encounter between Emma and Lily's older brother Chris. But the next day Emma feels that something went terribly wrong. When a doctor's appointment and a visit from police confirm that there was a sexual assault at the party, and the whole school turns against Emma, the three friends grapple with what actually happened between Emma and Chris.

Christine Quintana's play Selfie won the 2018 Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play (TYA), the 2018 Tom Hendry Award for Theatre for Young Audiences, and the 2015 Sydney Risk Prize.

Georgia Straight

'Quintana's temerity for making very polemical issues appear equivocal and challenging is a sincere compliment to her teenage viewers'
