Dumb Kids is a contemporary queer commentary on Wedekind’s Spring Awakening, asking why do we always tell queer kids it’ll get better but never that it’ll get good. Set over the course of a year it follows a group of ten Australian school students planning their year eleven formal and their intermixing journeys of discovering their sexualities, gender and how to grow up in a world where everyone seems to have already figured it out. Raucously funny and unflinching, Dumb Kids is a celebration of community, friendship and identity.

We acknowledge that we live and create on unceded lands. We pay our respects to the First Peoples of Australia, and to their elders past, present and future.
