Unhinged... in the best possible way
— ArtsHub
Profane and provocative comedy
— The Age
A glorious collision between experimental theatre and arthouse cinema…Bell-Wykes and Sheppard are pure geniuses and two of the most exciting talents that we currently have in Australian theatre.
— Lilthia Reviews

Meet Chase. She’s living her best life. Just a shame there’s no one left to see it.

Compelling, repelling, and funny. Joined by her zany crew of besties and YouTube subscribers for company, Chase is throwing the party to end all parties. The party to end the world! That's if any of them actually even exist…

Equally offensive and endearing to theatregoers from every walk of life, Carly Sheppard has been developing and performing the character of Chase for nearly a decade. Now she joins forces with Kamarra Bell-Wykes (A DAYLIGHT CONNECTION) to deliver the most over-the-top, cracked version of Chase yet!

If only Chase understood half of what she helps others discover.  

Meet Chase. You just might see yourself.


Based in Naarm (Melbourne) A DAYLIGHT CONNECTION is a motley crew of innovative and visionary theatre-makers, reimagining what First Nations theatre can be. 

Formed in 2022, we are an explosive union of equally weird and talented artists, dedicated to making kick-arse art rigorously and safely, hell-bent on taking our unique brand of post-traumatic adventure theatre to Australia and the world.

Our collective encompasses almost all creative and design roles from including, dramaturgy, devising, directing, choreography, performance, set and sound design, making for a dynamic, holistic and self-sustaining team.
