Chase

Written and performed by Carly Sheppard

9-13 November 2021

A HotHouse Theatre co-production with Malthouse Theatre

Meet Chase. She’s living her best life.

Hailing from the streets of Frankston, Chase is on a spiritual journey to reclaim her cultural heritage. Compelling, repelling, and disarmingly funny, join her as she sifts through the weeds of modern culture with a handy cam and her 33 YouTube subscribers for company.

If only Chase understood half of what she helps others discover.

Carly Sheppard has been developing and performing the Green Room Award-winning character of CHASE for nearly a decade. A macro metaphor of our colonial shame, she is equally offensive to theatregoers from every walk of life. But therein lies her power to spark conversations about race and class. Though the character has evolved from a skit to a one-woman show, Chase’s role as a mirror back to Australia remains appropriate – due in large part to Chase’s constant inappropriateness.

Meet Chase. And you just might see yourself.
