“I don’t know why I kissed Kaja. It just happened, and it was a bit strange, but it was also kind of nice. Or..?“
In KISSED we follow Mia and Kaja. Two best friends who are finally about to start high school. It’s always been them two, but then suddenly Mia feels something she’s not sure if she likes… The play revolves around new discoveries and a forbidden love, and delves into a subject matter that can be vulnerable and difficult for a lot of young people growing up. To accept and live out one’s true identity isn’t always easy, especially if you fear being harrassed and pushed away by loved ones. With KISSED we hope to inspire the young, as well as the older generations, to have a greater understanding and acceptance to everyone, no matter who they are and who they love.
