Set to the music of Green Day’s Grammy award-winning album, American Idiot centres on a motley crew of media-saturated kids living in the stagnant Jingletown, USA. With everyone fuelled by existential angst and flat-out rejection of American patriotism, Johnny (the self-proclaimed Jesus of Suburbia), alongside best friends Will and Tunny, inspires a movement to escape their boring home and take control of their lives. But as their paths diverge, encounters with the fiery and mysterious Whatsername, the passionate Heather and a seemingly Extraordinary Girl will fundamentally change this band of misfits as they battle with their crushing doubt, social fury and personal demons. Also featuring songs from 21st Century Breakdown and combining the pulsing energy of a rock gig with the raw, intimate storytelling of live theatre, this twisted urban fairytale is a dark and powerful story of rage and love which thrusts a mirror to Western culture and captures a generation searching for meaning and identity.
