About First Love is the Revolution

This is a play about hunger and desire. It’s Romeo and Juliet pushed to deranged extremes, where the unlikely sweethearts are a 14-year old boy and a young fox with brutal birthrights.

Rdeca’s whole family have fleas. Her mum is pushing her into making her first kill, a snivelling mole, before she’s ready.

Basti is being bullied at school by kids who call him a shrimp. His dad is too busy flirting with the neighbour to be of any real help.

Beneath the light of a full moon, Basti captures Rdeca, and so begins a starcross’d romance between hunter and prey.

Rita Kalnejais (BC, Babyteeth) makes a blood-splattered return from London with a play that’s blisteringly funny, provocative and just plain freaky. First Love is the Revolution is Fantastic Mr Fox if Margaret Atwood wrote the Netflix adaptation.

Director Lee Lewis says expect gore—and lots of it.
