The Story

When 12-year-old Edith makes an unfortunate spur-of-the-moment decision with her air rifle, she, her older brother Kenny, and his boyfriend Benji find themselves suddenly at odds with the adult world around them. A. Rey Pamatmat’s achingly beautiful play explores first love, the pangs of youth, and the universal search to find your family of choice. This production, directed by Đạt Peter Ton, is the latest from our award-winning John Steven Kellett Memorial Series.
