The Two Kids That Blow Shit Up

By Carla Ching
Directed by Jer Adrienne Lelliott

World Premiere
August 18 – September 4, 2016
The Lounge Theatre

As kids, Max and Diana meet on their parents’ date, then are kicked out of the house so their parents can get it on. They are forced to play together even though they aren’t really that fond of each other. Through over two decades of their parents’ tumultuous relationship of getting together, breaking up, getting married and then divorced, Max and Diana are perpetually forced together and become the most unlikely of friends. They see each other through their own marriages and divorces, rehabs and spin-outs, career rejiggerings and epic life fails. But when they actually fall into each other, will they lose the only family they’ve ever known? A play about falling in and out of love with your best friend.

Featuring Julia Cho and Nelson Lee
