A new original production from Byron Youth Theatre, Loves Me Loves Me Not, will run June 14 till 16 at the Bruns Picture House, from 7pm.

BYT Director, Lisa Apostolides, says the play explores issues of consent and responsible relationships.

‘It refers to and includes references to abuse, domestic violence and sexual assault.

‘BYT are well known for their honest and open exploration of important issues and provide an excellent opportunity for parents, caregivers, teachers and youth-related organisations to engage young people in meaningful conversations on the topics raised’.

‘Loves Me Loves Me Not follows several different relationships that intertwine and gives a powerful platform for both young people and adults to express their hopes, fears, confusion and deep longing about how we develop meaningful connection with one another. It includes live music, choreographed dance and dramatic scenes’. Tickets are available from www.brunswickpicturehouse.com.
