Lucy and Arnold are 13.
She listens to the Smashing Pumpkins and he’s just discovered Bowie.
He’s a bit sensitive and she loves The Simpsons – you know, before it got shit.
This week, he has an English assignment due.
And she’s planning on killing her stepdad.
From the award-winning Second Chance Theatre (Laika: A Staged Radio Play), Playthings is a dark new play about growing up in suburban WA. A modern day horror mixed with John Hughes coming-of-age vibes that takes you back to your teenage years in an ode to being young, dumb, and angry.
Praise for Second Chance Theatre
“One small step for theatre, one giant leap for theatre-goers everywhere” – Isolated Nation
