Chase – Carly Sheppard

Meet Chase. She’s living her best life.
Hailing from the streets of Frankston, Chase is
the itch you can’t scratch.
Compelling, repelling, and disarmingly funny,
join her as she sifts through the weeds of
modern culture with a handy cam and her
33 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 and has continued to develop
its persona through different independent
performances over the years. In 2019, she
was the recipient of a Green Room Award for
Best Production In Experimental Theatre for
Crackers N Dip With Chase N Toey.
Though the character has evolved from a
skit to a one- woman show, Chase’s role as a
mirror back to Australia remains appropriate—
due in large part to Chase’s constant
inappropriateness. But therein lies her power

to spark conversations about race and class.
Combining Carly’s unique comedic skill and
political awareness—and with the assistance
of projected visuals,
she invites her audience into the juxtaposed
digital and physical world as she confronts us
to consider how we continue to benefit from
colonialism.
Malthouse Theatre’s Artist in Residence
Kamarra Bell- Wykes (Chopped Liver, North
West of Nowhere, Body Armour, Viral and Scar
Trees) directs this confronting and sometimes
shocking exploration of race, class and gender
in a semi-fictional apocalyptic world.
‘Chase is the interruption to the loop, the
things you can’t say, the reflection you can
never unsee and the tragedy you can’t look
away from’ said Kamarra Bell- Wykes.
Meet Chase. And you just might see yourself.
