Presented by Black Swan State Theatre Company in collaboration with The Blue Room Theatre

A heartfelt suburban coming of age story of homework, hormones and homicide.

Lucy and Arnold are 13. Both outcasts. Both have seen hard times. Both irrevocably changed from one adventure into the bush looking for a dying kangaroo. Now they must navigate a wasteland of broken hearts, peed pants and carrot spew. 

A hit of The Blue Room Theatre 2019 season, this modern suburban coming-of-age story explores how we hurt each other, how we help those that are hurting, and how your music taste is never better than when you’re a teenager. 

"Heartfelt, effective storytelling that draws you in and demands that you care" - Stage Whispers


Hey dickface,

I know where to find a dead kangaroo. There’s one in the bush near my house. Want to see it? I’m going tonight. Sneaking out my window. Unless you’re scared. Are you scared? Are you nervous? No?

Meet me at the fallen tree.
