Love is in the air…
Love Letters opens Wednesday 31 October
Peek into the hearts of Melbourne’s teenagers as they experience love for the very first time in Love Letters. A co-production between St Martins Youth Arts Centre and Arts Centre Melbourne, written by Kylie Trounson and St Martins’ Teen Ensemble and directed by Sarah Austin, Love Letters takes its inspiration from real-life love letters that have been collected by the artists and crafted into the performance.
Retelling age-old lessons in love submitted by adults and kids alike, Love Letters presents the heart-warming and cringe-worthy truths of first loves on the stage. From schoolyard crushes to a girl’s obsession with Justin Bieber – nothing is sacred in this honest and candid production based on the real-life experiences of everyday Melburnians. Told through the voices of teenage actors, Love Letters captures the hormones, the tears and the giddy feeling of being in love for the first time.
“I'm so excited to be working with this bunch of incredible artists, and in particular a cast of eleven teenage artists whose passion, ideas, capacity and vision leaves nothing to be desired,” said director Sarah Austin. “It has been a fascinating experience collecting people’s actual love letters and crafting them into a performance. We hope audiences see a bit of their own experiences reflected on the stage – quite literally.”
