Part of MTC’s acclaimed Families and Education Program, SLAP. BANG. KISS. tracks three young people whose stories kickstart a series of events none of them could have anticipated, transforming them into global symbols of revolution.

Exploring themes of hope, identity and activism, this is a bold MTC NEXT STAGE Original from multi-awardwinning playwright Dan Giovannoni (MERCILESS GODS), directed by Katy Maudlin (CYBEC ELECTRIC 2021). 

SLAP. A video of 16-year-old Immi hitting a security officer goes viral.

BANG. Sofia’s impassioned speech for the victims of a school shooting makes international news.

KISS. In the car park of a small-town Woolies, people rally around Darby and Daniel as the boys lock lips in an attempt to set the world record for the longest kiss.

But when their stories go viral and the whole world is watching, what will they do next? 

Suitable for children aged 14y+

SLAP. BANG. KISS. was commissioned through Melbourne Theatre Company’s NEXT STAGE Writers’ Program with the support of the Playwrights Giving Circle, The Ian Potter Foundation, Naomi Milgrom Foundation, The Myer Foundation, Malcolm Robertson Foundation and The University of Melbourne.
