"It's not a party 'til someone's crying in the bathroom..."
'BRB' is a play about four teenagers in their final year of secondary school whose lives and relationships are torn apart by a secret love affair between two girls. Addressing issues like bullying, homophobia, friendship, love, depression, sexual identity, expectations and suicide, 'BRB' is a snapshot of the lives of young people today.
Premiering at the 10th International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, 'BRB' has played to audiences in Dublin, Cork, Waterford, Kilkenny and Limerick, been screened in the UK, and is now available for free streaming in the hopes that it will reach the people who really need to see it. So please watch and share to raise awareness of these important issues.
'BRB' was written by Australian writer and producer Kirsten Stoddart and Irish film and theatre writer and director, Jessie Kirby. This filmed production features the original 2013 cast of young Irish actors aged between 16 and 25, and was shot and edited in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, by Jessie Kirby.
