Presented by THAT Production Company and Ipswich Civic Centre
“I step into the light and it’s fame ’n glory all the way for the boy who murdered ’imself ’n lived to tell the tale tonight.”
THAT Production Company are continuing their critically acclaimed collaboration with the Ipswich Civic Centre with a new production of Adam J A Cass’ play I Love You, Bro. The play will be presented in the heart of the Ipswich CBD at Fire Station 101, which will be converted into a boutique performance space for this production.
Artistic Director, Timothy Wynn (Matilda Award nominee for Best Director) will helm this new production directing two of the regions most exciting up and coming actors, Nic Davidson (The Breakfast Club, The Initiation of Tommy Wilson) and Jordan Stott (The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, Summerfolk) who will be sharing the role of Johnny across the performance season.
Meet Johnny: a lonely 14-year-old boy from Manchester with a troubled home life and a vivid imagination. Johnny finds solace on the web in his online channels of chatter with faceless friends. Johnny’s online world is turned upside down when he comes across a local teen from the real world in one of his chat rooms. A fast friendship is formed in a web of lies that leads to a series of events with dark consequences.
I Love You, Bro, written by Melbourne-based writer Adam J A Cass in 2007 and was first performed that year at the Melbourne Fringe. The play has since had productions in Brisbane, Sweden, New Zealand, Denmark and Germany.
Based on true events, I Love You, Bro is a modern murder mystery born from the digital age that has to be seen to be believed.
