ABOUT THE CLASS
As a major part of their Unit 3 assessment, VCE Theatre Studies students must 'stage a play' and take on two production roles. Over the last two months, these students have been responsible for acting, directing, lighting, sound, set-design, costume, make-up and props - all taking place on top of their normal school work load during class times, after schools, holiday and weekend rehearsals.
They hope you enjoy their interpretation of Finegan Kruckemeyer's 'The Violent Outburst That Drew Me to You'.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Please note - this show contains adult themes and adult language.
Connor is 16 and angry. He doesn’t know why. Lately everything and everyone is annoying him. He’s slamming doors, flipping desks and always fighting. But, when he takes his rage one step too far, his parents decide to leave him in the forest for a week, alone. That should sort him out. Until he meets Lotte – also 16, also angry, but maybe just the friend Connor needs.
As unpredictable as Connor himself, The Violent Outburst That Drew Me To You tackles the ticking time bomb of adolescence with humour and heart. Multi-award-winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is renowned internationally as a leading figure in theatre for young people. His smart, sweet and fiery tale about two offbeat kids at war with the world will resonate with teenagers, and anyone who has ever been one.
