Wrecked follows the story of Lyle, a hard working older brother, trying hard to spare his sister Susie the grief of dealing with their alcoholic mother. The play is peppered with “teen scenes”, exploring the consequences of irresponsible use of drugs and alcohol. The play never judges or condemns, but offers options towards responsibility. The text is fast and funny, drawing teen audiences in with staccato rhythms and many punchlines. Presented in a fluid lean style supported by a percussionist, the goal was to grab the audience’s attention especially the kids sitting at the back.
