Sixteen year old Connor is angry. People and things he once liked now just annoy him. Even his best mate. Connor is isolated in the forest for a week by himself to calm down. Then a girl called Lotte walks into the woods. And she is angry too.
Winner of the 2014 AWGIE award for Best Theatre for Young People, Kruckemeyer’s play is a whip-smart, sweet and funny tale about two offbeat kids at war with the world - a work that will resonate with teenagers, and anyone who has ever been one.
‘Funny without being patronising, and serious without seeming earnest...this play develops a hallucinatory quality which feels just right.’
Sydney Morning Herald
‘This is a beautifully written and structured play… It lets young people know that
