FEATURES OF BLOWN YOUTH

by Raimondo Cortese

A RED DOOR PUBLICATION

Those with plenty of time and little else.

Into a shared house of urban twenty-somethings including a student, a stripper, a wannabe writer, an unemployed philosopher and his frustrated offsider, enters a naive skinhead, an ambitious sex worker and the very dangerous landlord and everyone’s world explodes in a raw, provocative and ultimately violent drama.

The sharp, sometimes shattering Features Of Blown Youth may not be an overtly political play but, in its culmination of detail and debris, it manages to pack an almighty punch. Features Of Blown Youth is brilliant theatre.
BRYCE HALLETT, THE AUSTRALIAN

This is a powerful work given an excellent production, and it satisfyingly develops a subtle plot out of its tangle of relationships. The end is almost sickeningly bleak… this is genuinely disturbing theatre. See it if you can.
THE AGE, MELBOURNE

Blown away — gritty young theatre to mess with your head.
BRYCE HALLETT, METRO SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
