"Here's a morally terrifying drama for the age of the selfie and sexting" – Evening Standard
James Fritz’s Olivier Award nominated play, Four Minutes Twelve Seconds, will have its Australian premiere at The Old Fitz Theatre. Outhouse Theatre, the team behind last year’s hugely acclaimed The Aliens, are thrilled to bring to the stage “a morally terrifying drama for the age of the selfie and sexting” (London Evening Standard)
“A thoroughly modern morality tale that also turns into a psychological thriller. It's the story that matters here and it is riveting. ★★★★★” – The Times
Di and David have devoted their lives to giving their son every opportunity they never had — and now Jack is smart and outgoing with a brilliant future ahead of him. But a violent incident outside the school gates and a cell phone video gone viral threaten to ruin everything they’ve worked for. As events accelerate, Di and David start to doubt their closest friends, their own son, and ultimately themselves.
This smash-hit play from London's West End is a gasp-inducing, topical thriller, throwing light on the insidiousness of a world where smartphones are ubiquitous and nothing dies online, except reputation.
