A play written with Claire Christian.
Performed by Queensland Theatre Company's Senior Youth Ensemble
There’s a bomb in the school.
The bomb is going to explode.
Do you know who did it?
The Land Mine is Me by David Burton and Claire Christian is a comic and contemporary take on the life of an adolescent. The school has been evacuated and we meet the misfits, the perfectionists, the drama queens and the socially awkward. More than an angst riddled exploration of “teenage issues”, The Land Mine is Me asks the audience to consider, how far do you have to push before someone explodes?
‘Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces back together.’
