See the world on one stage.
Through the voices of young people.

As democracies thin out all over the world, is there a radical hope to be found in the humble high school drama classroom? Dr. Kathleen Gallagher has spent her life researching young people and how drama affords a rare window onto their experiences, anxieties and dreams. Written by award-winning documentary theatre-maker Andrew Kushnir, Towards Youth brings Kathleen’s timely work to the stage, and reveals startling truths about youth culture in England, Greece, India, Taiwan and Canada. Exploring Brexit to Trump to growing up in times of austerity, this new play envisions drama kids across the globe as more than the canaries in the coalmine. While helping us to understand how they’re shouldering this world they have inherited, can young people teach us all a better way forward?

CREATIVE TEAM:
