ATYP 06—07 Education 2020 Winner! Senior ATYP Foundation Commission 2018 One quiet night, the street lights flicker out and plunge the world into darkness. A “lights out” party is announced in Royal Park, and every kid in town makes their way there to celebrate this strange occurrence. A trio of role–players leave their game and embark on a quest for revenge... two enterprising youngsters sell torches at reasonable prices... the disgraced star of a viral video looks to make her social comeback and the floor–mopper at the local chemist encounters the worst kind of shoplifter. All these stories unfold on the way to Royal Park because everybody’s on their way to the same party. And it is not to be missed. The Senior ATYP Foundation Commission develops a new play each year that showcases the skills of actors aged 14–17. Published by Playlab, this is your chance to see the first production of a show that will be presented in schools around the country for years to come.
