The second production from the Tallangatta Community Theatre tells an honest story about the reality of being a teenager in the online world.
And who better to direct such a performance, than young people.
Jail Butler and Evelyn Deery, both 18, have written and directed The Identity Project, a story of "enduring the obstacles of modern teenage life".
"It follows the life of a young girl called Eleanor and it's about her experience," Jai said.
"It's her home life, her school life, and how the things in each of those places build on her mental illness and push her to dark places.
"This play is all about teenage life and educating people about what it's like growing up in the internet age."
This is the second original production to come out of Tallangatta Community Theatre.
In 2018 they presented The Wild Colonial Boys, which challenged colonialism and the concealed racism present in rural Australian communities.
Evelyn said about 80 people attended each show, directed by teacher Mandy Goff.
"She ran a drama class at school and we produced a play for that, and she thought she would put together a theatre club to continue that," she said.
"It was so fun being part of that, I loved it.
"She directed but is now acting as the mum in the story, and helped to write a lot of scenes.
"We want people our age to come along who can relate to it, but we also want older people who may not understand what it's like to be a teenager in this time to give them a perspective."
Jai said the theatre group wanted to address real issues.

"Mandy is very interested in Indigenous culture around this area and wanted to write a play educating the community about what happened here," he said.
"That's what happened last year and then it continued on.
"The night after the closing show of Wild Colonial Boys, I wrote the first scene of this - it's been a year in the making.
"We're both young and obviously a lot of playwrights and directors take from life experience and we don't have heaps of that, so we thought we'd write something that actually relates to us."
There are 12 cast members but numerous other support members in the theatre group.
To keep costs down, the set has been entirely designed by the group using mostly reused and recycled materials.
The Identity Project is showing at 7pm on October 4 and 5 at the Tallangatta Memorial Hall.
Tickets are $20. Note the show is not suitable for audiences under 15.
