Burn/Chatroom/Citizenship – 2006

Play | 2 hours 30 min | 8 March – 3 June 2006
Three short, sharp and provocative plays where the drama of teenagers’ lives take centre stage. Burn – a loner in foster-care asks a girl out on an ill-fated date in a stolen car. One day, on the riverbank, the friends he never had narrate the story of his dramatic last day. Chatroom – in cyberspace six 15-year-olds type and chat. A chilling and powerful tale of manipulation and the ultimate act of teenage rebellion. Citizenship – a bittersweet comedy about growing up, following a boy’s frank and messy search to discover his sexual identity.
