Based on true events, I Love You, Bro is a tale of love and deceit in a digital world.


Johnny is a digital chameleon, able to change who he is with the stroke of a key and the click of a mouse — a skill he puts to use in an online chatroom. Posing as a girl, under the screen name AlbaJay, Johnny stumbles across someone he knows from his real life, a boy from school, MarkyMark.

The two begin a digital relationship, but as the fictional world he has created starts to collide with reality, Johnny must do whatever it takes to make sure MarkyMark still loves him.

Based on true events, I Love You, Bro is a tale of love and deceit in a digital world.

I Love You, Bro was originally produced as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2007, in the Loft at the Lithuanian Club, North Melbourne. It premiered as a mainstage production at La Boite in 2010 and has since been produced in New Zealand, Denmark and Sweden.

"Playwright Adam Cass has woven a masterful and engrossing tale, based on real life events so bizarre and unbelievable that it seems they were always meant for the theatre."

Claire Renton, Scene Magazine
