Sixteen year old Connor is angry. People and things he once liked now just annoy him. Even his best mate. Then, the outburst. Connor is isolated in the forest for a week by himself to calm down. But his anger has travelled with him. 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 fiery tale about two offbeat kids who, at war with the world, find a moment’s peace with each other. It’s a reminder of the impatient impulse in all of us to kick and scream at the universe, and the equally impatient impulse to lie in a forest glade and dream of the future.

One of Australia’s most exciting and celebrated playwrights, Finegan Kruckemeyer’s work has universal appeal. MTC’s production will have all the hallmarks of a classic comedy and appeal to many.
