The Yum Yum Room
By Stephen House
Directed by Andrew Wiginton
appropriate for ages 15 and up; mature themes and language
Single dad. Teenage boy. Growing up. First love. Small town. Secret place. Get away. Must escape…The Yum Yum Room. In its United States debut, Australian playwright Stephen House tells the gritty coming-of-age story of Tom, a young man who has lost all interest in school and just wants to be a DJ. Then Tom meets Annabelle, and Annabelle changes everything. In the season’s Theatre for Youth production, The Yum Yum Room honestly examines the beauty and pain of first love and highlights the struggle many young people experience in defining themselves through the claustrophobic world of small town life.
