Suburban homicide while watching RAGE

Lucy and Arnold are 13.

She listens to the Smashing Pumpkins and he’s just discovered Queen.

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 an unflinching portrayal of violence, trauma, and abuse in Australian suburbia. A mash-up of Donnie Darko and late-night viewings of RAGE that takes you back to your teenage years in an ode to being young, dumb, and angry.
