A group of students at a posh high school are gearing up for their final exams and the pressure is on. They have to be the smartest, the funniest, the prettiest and the most athletic. Faced with an increasingly disinterested world, these seven teenagers are trying to find a way out of their small town and the small-minded people within it. With hormones raging and minimal adult supervision, nothing can hide the tension that’s bubbling ever closer to the surface.
Written by Simon Stephens and directed by Artistic Director Felicity Nicol with a cast of local young people, this 2015 Spark production gave audiences insight into the modern pressures of being a teenager.
“Felicity Nicol has directed a forceful and thought-provoking production.” (The Buzz from Sydney)
