April’s Fool — Senior Drama Production — Two Performances Only

De La Salle College and OLSH Bentleigh present this year’s Senior Play, April’s Fool by David Burton.

The play is about the real-life tragedy of Kristjan Terauds who died of a drug overdose on April Fool’s Day in 2009. To deal with this tragedy Kristjan’s father wrote a journal entitled April’s Fool. The play is verbatim, weaving real-life interviews with family and friends to shed a light on Kristjan’s story. Moments of humour and lightness underscore the dark moments of grief and loss throughout the play.

As the director of the play, I could not be prouder of the cast in their work ethic and commitment to the production. The play is challenging for young adults to take on, as they are responsible for sharing a real story, with actual words from the family about such a sensitive topic. The cast has approached this task with a sense of maturity and sensitivity beyond their years, forming a strong bond as an ensemble. Throughout all of the trials, tribulations and hard work of putting together a production, we have never once forgotten to laugh during a rehearsal. The support and kindness that the cast offers one another have made me proud to be their director.

Please come along to show your support to this talented young cast!

When: Friday 14 September at 7:30pm and Saturday 15 September at 7:30pm
Where: Performing Arts Centre at OLSH College Bentleigh, 111 Jasper Road Bentleigh
Cost: $10 students, $20 adults and $50 family (2 adults + 2 children)
