Created and written by Jackson Burling

What happens when you mix four highschool lads, too much to drink, and the Remutaka Hills?
As the boys pull themselves out of the wreckage and find themselves completely stranded in the wops, how will they pass the time with no reception, and no sign of rescue?
Boys, Wake Up! addresses the 40% of fatal road accidents that involve alcohol and drugs, the high numbers of youth involved in these accidents, and the link our binge drinking culture has to toxic masculinity.
Darkly funny, confronting, and crucial – the forest is cold, and the silence can be deafening.

Brick Haus Productions is a new and diverse production company striving to produce theatre that brings important, relevant messages to the forefront for those who need to hear them. The group are all young adults highly inspired by the community of the Te Whanganui-a-Tara region and wider Aotearoa.
Brick Haus thrives on devising collaboratively to create forward thinking, contemporary and experimental work with a Kiwi twist. Founding members Bella Petrie, Genoveva Reverte, Bon Buchanan, Graxe Hadfield and Caleb Pedro formed the company in their final year of drama school after recognising that the best way for them to get work in the arts industry was for them to make their own.
Further than this, the team wanted to help other young artists just like Burling to be able to get their own incredible art off the ground and out to audiences. Alongside Burling and Brick Haus’ Caleb Pedro you can also see performances from newly graduated actors Isaac Andrews and Renata Mahuika. Brick Haus is so proud to be assisting this incredibly talented and passionate team in bringing Boys, Wake Up! to the BATS stage this Fringe.
