The Potato Shed is presenting the Melbourne Theatre Company’s production of The Violent Outburst that Drew Me To You on Tuesday May 28.
Sixteen-year-old Connor is angry but doesn’t know why.
As he attempts to navigate his way through his pent-up emotions, he begins to feel annoyed at people and things he once liked.
His parents “There’s just one volume: this really loud one where it’s all three of us shouting at each other”; his once-cool uncle, and even his best friend are each getting on his last nerve.
Following a violent outburst, Connor is dropped off in a woodland for one week in a bid to calm him down.
Connor thinks he is alone with his built-up fury, but then a girl named Lotte walks into the woods, and she is just as angry as he is.
“The Violent Outburst that Drew Me To You is a smart, sweet and a fiery tale about two off-kilter kids who, at war with the world and themselves, find a moment’s peace with each other. Tackling the ticking-time bomb that is adolescence, it is a reminder of the impulse within us all to kick and scream at the universe and the equally impatient need to lie in the woods, planning for the future,” a release about the production read.
Written by multi-award winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer, the afternoon session of The Violent Outburst that Drew Me To You has sold out.
To book for the 7pm show, phone the Potato Shed box office on 5251 1998 or pick up tickets from any City of Greater Geelong Service Centre.
