Christa and Jamie are sisters. Together they are embarking upon the treacherous transition between girlhood and womanhood. Christa wants Jamie to start living, Jamie refuses to leave the house.

Written by Pippa Ellams and directed by Hannah Goodwin, The Carousel was shortlisted for the Rodney Seaborne Playwrights Award in 2015 and was developed through ArtsLab. Fresh off the back of a successful season at Merrigong, this strictly limited run of The Carousel will close KXT's Step Up Festival .


In March 2018 we're dedicating a month to The Next Big Thing. Come meet our Step Up team and take a peek at their work. Discover new plays in development. Take a first glance at the work of some of Sydney's newest and most exciting emerging artists: writers, directors, producers, designers all testing their wings.

At KXT we're investing in risk. 

DIRECTOR / ACTOR Hannah Goodwin is a member of the KXT2018 Step Up team. She spoke with AUDREY JOURNAL “Artists come to KXT to earn their stripes,” says actor-director Hannah Goodwin. “I haven’t worked here before now but I know artists are coming here because they can be ambitious.”
