I Love You Bro’: La Boite Theatre Company at the Roundhouse
I Love you, Bro’ by Adam J A Cass
Directed by David Berthold
Prepare to be plunged headlong into a vortex of online love.
David Berthold directs this explosive new production, which comes to La Boite for a strictly limited three-week season from 22 July. Based on extraordinary real events, this stunning work delves into the mind of Johnny, a teenage chat room junkie. A modern boy, remarkably clever and longing for connection, he spins a web of deceit that destroys two lives – all for the glory of love.
Following the success of Hamlet with young audiences earlier this year, David returns to direct brilliant young talent Leon Cain, Sydney Theatre Award’s Best Newcomer, in this heart-stopping production. Nominated for a Greenroom Award for Best Australian Writing, this inspired Australian play is driven by an urgent vernacular that will deliver an electrifying night in the theatre. This is the true story of a boy who conspired to murder himself.
