JANUARY 4–FEBRUARY 3, 2013
Get ready for Troublemaker, or The Freakin Kick-A Adventures of Bradley Boatright. Only Berkeley Rep could unleash this wild world premiere, commissioned from hot young playwright Dan LeFranc. It’s nineteen mighty-four. In working-class Rhode Island, Bradley and his bestest friend tangle with rich kid Jake Miller and his middle-school goons. And their nemesis has help from a bunch of zombies and grown-ups! Put down that backpack, turn up the soundtrack and let’s cut class. Faster than a speedboat, more fun than a video game, Troublemaker has a sassy mouth and an irresistible heart of gold.
Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, with two intermissions
Berkeley Rep's Ground Floor held a workshop for Troublemaker in July 2012 at our inaugural Summer Lab. The workshop provided a key stepping stone in the path toward production.
