NT Connections Festival 2020 – Day 4
by Andrew Muir | presented by Worlds End Productions
A world without adult supervision? Nine young people decide to throw away what they know and make new rules for a better world. They have rituals, they have rules, together they are a tribe, they have faith in themselves… and nothing and no one else.
They are the future, unless the real world catches up with them and then all they can hope for is that they don't crash and burn like the adults they ran away from in the first place.
by Vivienne Franzmann | presented by City Academy Hackney
A teenage girl has something growing inside her, and she knows it's not a baby. It has claws. She feels them. Does it have teeth, skin, and hair as well, or is that feathers, or spikes she can feel, butting up against her organs? What is it?
She has to keep its presence, its possession of her, concealed. She pulls away from her friends. She refuses to speak in case The It is heard. Then the It tries to escape from her body. She can't let that happen.
Presented in the style of a direct-to-camera documentary, this is a darkly comic state-of-the-nation play exploring adolescent mental health and the rage within.
