I said a word was the result of a commission by Riverland Youth Theatre Company to create a play about young people living in the Riverland, South Australia.
Its themes—peer group pressure, youth dynamics, bullying, homophobia, support and friendship—were developed from a number of workshops in Barmera.
The play is set over one evening at a young people's party by the river. It can accommodate a larger cast.
