Teenage Dick

Even Machiavelli went through puberty


March 8-17, 2019

Sydney Laurence Theatre

Richard’s cerebral palsy might make him late to class, but it doesn’t stop him from winning the girl, or mastering the art of deceptions based on his Machiavellian belief that it’s better to be feared than loved. Student council secretary, and “third in line” purse strings wielded by the student president, Eddie, Richard finds the mere idea of power going to his head.Loosely inspired by Shakespeare’s Richard III, Teenage Dick is a bubbling cauldron of youthful tragedy.

By Mike Lew

Directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh

If you liked They Don’t Talk Back, Othello, or God of Carnage, you’ll love Teenage Dick.
