SCAB

BY DANNY BALL

a Young Industry Studio production

Winner! of the 2023 Senior Foundation Commission.

On this day every year the ‘Kappa Crew’ perform a sacred ritual in honour of Amalia’s sister, who died four years ago. They pool their money to buy flowers, wag fifth period, go to the cemetery and sing ‘All the Small Things’ by Blink 182. 

But when the crew meet at the start of lunch, something goes horribly wrong… no one brought any money. No one has any money. A plan is set into motion — scab! The crew splits up in an attempt to find enough money to buy flowers, but scabbing money at Meadow Ditch High is not the only challenge they face. 

Scab is a hilarious tale paying homage to the tenacity of young people who, when confronted with a lack of resources, become infinitely more resourceful than those around them. 

The Senior ATYP Foundation Commission develops a new play each year that showcases the skills of actors aged 14–17. Published by Playlab Theatre, this play will be presented in schools around the country for years to come. Scab is the 2023 winner of this award.
