The Questors Present
First Love is the Revolution by Rita Kalnejais
Two lost souls, one crazy wild romance
Awkward and lonely Basti is struggling with adolescent angst when he meets Rdeca. Suddenly an impossible bond develops between them. Both are told they must stick to their own, but opposites attract. Coupled with the darkness of a depressed mother and a murdered father between them, the emotional rawness of this coming-of-age tale will soon spiral dangerously out of control.
A viciously funny and joyfully absurd piece, this is Romeo and Juliet with a feral and poetic twist. A story of love and lust in which realism blends seamlessly with the fantastic, taking us on a visceral night time journey through the moonlit back garden and beyond.
A truly unique teenage love story, both deeply intimate yet wonderfully
surreal, artfully juxtaposing the horror of death with the bewitching
nature of first love.
Suitable for ages 15+ due to sexual content and strong language.
Estimated running time: 1 hour and 40 minutes with no interval.
