Winner of the ATYP Rebel Wilson Theatre maker Scholarship and shortlisted for the Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Award, Cactus is a fast paced coming of age comedy exploding with the confidence, conviction and confusion only a teenage girl can have.

Abbie and Pb are in their last year of high school. It’s going well. I mean, they’re still virgins, but it’s going well. And then Abbie finds out that she can’t have kids. It doesn’tmean much to her at first – who wants a kid at seventeen? But as things and people start to change around her, she is suddenly and unceremoniously confronted with a world shewasn’t ready for.
