Meet Chase. She’s living her best life.
Compelling, repelling, and funny, Chase sifts through the weeds of contemporary culture with a handy cam and her YouTube subscribers for company.
If only Chase understood half of what she helps others discover.
Carly Sheppard has been developing and performing the character of Chase for nearly a decade. A macro metaphor of our colonial shame, Chase is equally offensive to theatregoers from every walk of life. But therein lies her power. Chase is a mirror back to Australia.
Meet Chase. You just might see yourself.
