Homework, hormones, and homicide

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.
