For most girls, finding a place within the cliques, the hierarchies, and the gossip of a new school is tough enough. For Freya Star, it’s astronomically more difficult. She’s different; she is convinced she has been marked by something not of this world. She knows she is destined for something amazing, but when the girls at school start prying into Freya’s life, everything she thinks she knows starts crashing down to Earth.

Written for Brisbane Girls' Grammar School, The Chosen is much more than a drama about trying to fit in. It questions humanities place in the universe, and delves into our desires to be unique. It flawlessly blends realistic characters with tall tales and larger than life themes.



The Chosen was commissioned by Brisbane Girls Grammar School. It was created in collaboration with Drama students and staff and was first performed in August 2013.
