About This Show:
In April 2009, two weeks short of his nineteenth birthday, Toowoomba teenager Kristjan died due to complications from illicit drug use. Using the words of Kristjan’s friends and family interviewed over many months, and inspired by the journal of Kristjan’s father, David Burton has dramatised a powerful story of love, loss, and sadness,
with touching humour.
For the first time since the original production,
David Burton has returned to the script in this very special Grin and Tonic production designed especially for schools.
April’s Fool’ was originally commissioned and produced by the Empire Theatre Projects Company.
