31 Aug

Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!

From Australian writer, Craig Christie, of the West End hit musical EUROBEAT (Winner, Best Musical Edinburgh Fringe 2007) comes CONNECTED - a rock musical fable of four teenagers caught in an uncontrollable situation, as their online lives have real world consequences.

SYNOPSIS
Emma arrives at a new school and runs the gauntlet of finding out about friendship groups and how the game is played in this new setting. Meanwhile Dylan’s social awkwardness means he is spending more and more time on his computer locked away in his room. When Emma finds herself the object of unwanted attention of the school jock Michael, his ex girlfriend Kate uses any means available to put the new girl in her place. The entire situation takes a turn towards the sinister as their online world collides with their lives in a way over which they ultimately have no control and which threatens to have the most disastrous consequences.

REVIEWS
"Some of his pop-rock compositions here are equally catchy 
and lyrically snappy, albeit with a strong undercurrent of angst" 
-- METRO, UK (2014)

"It's about emotions...small actions that change the direction of what we see and how we react.
Text messages projected on the video screen, clearly show that what sounds relatively 
harmless can make a completely different impression to the recipient."
-- HBL newspaper, Finland (2017)
