The One Sure Thing

Come and see Carolyn’s monologue ‘Stick’ as part of the Australian Theatre for Young People’s fantastic showcase The One Sure Thing, directed by Tanya Goldberg.

[Stick] is, by turns, crushing and laugh-out-loud funny.


Burns has balanced the writing beautifully. The tragedy of the situation is off-set and hilighted by a chavelier sense of humour. The performance by Emma Campbell is confident and clear, she takes her time to digest our silent responses – or her own thoughts.

It was perhaps Carolyn Burns’ Stick that was the most poignant monologue of the evening, detailing the coping mechanism of a young and defiant but ultimately conflicted young girl (Emma Campbell) facing the long road of chronic illness.
