Features of Blown Youth
by Raimondo Cortese
A new play at the New Theatre
It's the inner city; a student, a stripper, a struggling writer, a cynical idealist and a wannabe tough guy are living in a shared house. Enter a naïve skinhead, an ambitious prostitute and their very dangerous landlord and everyone's world implodes. A raw, violent and ultimately provocative Australian drama.
This darkly humorous and gritty play is perhaps even more relevant today than when it was first performed in Melbourne in 1997.
Strictly limited season 7 - 23 October 2004
Thurs - Sat @ 8pm, Sun @ 5.30pm
All tickets: $15 Bookings: 9519 8958
