As unpredictable as Connor himself, The Violent Outburst That Drew Me To You tackles the ticking time bomb of adolescence with humour and heart.

‘You argue with everyone. You are angry with everyone. So we’re giving you time away – from everyone.’

Connor is 16 and angry. He doesn’t know why. Lately everything and everyone is annoying him. He’s slamming doors, flipping desks and always fighting. But, when he takes his rage one step too far, his parents decide to leave him in the forest for a week, alone. That should sort him out. Until he meets Lotte – also 16, also angry, but maybe just the friend Connor needs.

Multi-award-winning playwrightFinegan Kruckemeyer is renowned internationally as a leading figure in theatre for young people. His smart, sweet and fiery tale about two offbeat kids at war with the world will resonate with teenagers, and anyone who has ever been one.

Starring Harry Tseng (Jasper Jones) and directed byPrue Clark (Contest) this production forms part of MTC’s acclaimed Families and Education Program.
