SLAP. A video of 16-year-old Immi hitting a security officer goes viral. BANG. Sofia’s impassioned speech for the victims of a school shooting makes international news. KISS. In the car park of a small-town supermarket, people rally around Darby and Daniel as the boys lock lips in an attempt to set the world record for the longest kiss.

Shortlisted for the 2021 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards, this new play is from multi-award winning playwright Dan Giovannoni

SLAP. BANG. KISS. tracks three young people whose stories kick-start a series of events none of them could have anticipated, transforming them into global symbols of revolution. But when their stories go viral and the whole world is watching, what will they do next?

Exploring themes of activism, community and hope, director Katy Maudlin delivers a bold production featuring Sarah Fitzgerald, Conor Leach and Tsungirai Wachenuka for the Melbourne Theatre Company’s acclaimed Education and Families Program.
