Harry Tseng (Jasper Jones) stars as the unpredictable Connor alongside Josh Price (An Ideal Husband) and newcomer Izabella Yena in Finegan Kruckemeyer’s The Violent Outburst That Drew Me to You, a smart, sweet and fiery tale about two offbeat kids at war with the world, directed by Prue Clark (Contest).
Opening at Southbank Theatre on Monday 6 May as part of MTC’s acclaimed Families and Education Program, this production for teenagers (and anyone who’s ever been one) tackles the ticking time bomb of adolescence with affection and humour.
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.
May 2 – 18
