The Climbing Tree is a significant original play developed by Rachael Coopes over a four-year period. It contemplates the power of place, specifically Bathurst, as a sphere that both fosters and challenges identity. This theme, poignantly dramatised through four teenage characters – Kylie (Jayla-Shae Davey), Rayleen (Madelaine Osborn), Scott (Janda Nichols) and Will (Jack Walton) – also addresses the elasticity of place as an invisible sphere of memory, nostalgia, and even, trauma.
