Synopsis: The cover of a manhole starts to move and a beautiful glowing jar is pushed over the edge. A small hand follows, then an arm – a girl pulls herself to the surface. She picks up the jar, holds it to her chest and looks to us. Looks right at us. 

The Trolleys are a gang of six living on the outskirts of the city. They need their light jars to survive the dangerous place they live in but their lights are fading fast and no one knows why. It's up to Savage Kim and her fiery, soulful, smart, skittish (and sometimes silly) gang to embark on a dangerous journey to figure it out. All they know is that they don’t have much time and if they fail they too will disappear. They will be Dusters. 

This captivating new play by Sara West won the 2014 ATYP Foundation Commission Award. It’s got a big heart and asks big questions. What happens if you inherit a world where you aren’t safe? What do we need to survive in the dark? Who will save us if we can’t save ourselves? 

No one wants to be a Duster… 

Production History: The Trolleys was commissioned by the ATYP and first performed in Sydney at ATYP Studio 1 at the Wharf in November, 2015.
