Revolving around the lives of three disgruntled young men struggling to find meaning in a post-9/11 world, American Idiot tells the stories of Johnny, Tunny and Will who flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life. Their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship.

An energy-fuelled rock opera, American Idiot has little reliance on dialogue and instead demonstrates the power of the lyrics from Green Day's ground breaking album to execute the story line.

The two-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Green Day's American Idiot, based on the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day's album American Idiot, as well as several songs from follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown.

Please be advised that this show contains drug misuse, suicide, explicit language, homophobic language, ableist language, offensive language and scenes of a sexual nature. Recommended Age: +14
