Stuck Up & Stupid

By Angourie Rice & Kate Rice
The only thing worse than cleaning up after celebrities was having to watch her own family trying to impress them.

The quiet coastal community of Pippi Beach is rocked when a party of young Hollywood movie stars and influencers arrives for the summer. Like most of the locals, mum Lydia is thrilled but her teenage daughter Lily finds the Hollywood types are superficial and arrogant – especially Dorian Khan, the most famous of them all. She is soon to discover that first impressions can be deceiving …

This hilarious debut turns a much loved classic into a contemporary hit – written by Angourie Rice, internationally acclaimed actor and host of the literary podcast The Community Library, and her award winning playwright mother, Kate Rice.
