Synopsis: There’s a bomb in the school. The bomb is going to explode. Do you know who did it?

The Land Mine is Me is a comic and contemporary take on the life of an adolescent. The school has been evacuated and we meet the misfits, the perfectionists, the drama queens and the socially awkward. More than an angst riddled exploration of “teenage issues”, The Land Mine is Me asks the audience to consider, how far do you have to push before someone explodes?

Production History: The Land Mine is Me was originally commissioned by Queensland Theatre Company in 2014 as part of the Scene Project, where it was used as an educational performance text by over 170 Queensland students as well as presented by professional creatives and performers. 

The Land Mine is Me was then re-written for the 2015 Queensland Theatre Company Senior Youth Ensemble. The production premiered at the Bille Brown Studio on July 2, 2015. This is the version published in this volume.
