Swavesey Youth Theatre


WHAT ARE THEY LIKE? by Lucinda Coxon – 28th April

Swavesey Youth Theatre - What are they like?This play was written for the National Theatre’s Shell Connections programme in 2013 and is a dialogue reflecting a collection of non-consecutive remarks delivered from the perspective of a teenager’s parent.

The teenage years can be a myriad of challenges and emotions.  With projected angst, mood swings, fashion flops, money pressures, terrifying physical changes…and that’s just the parents! How well do you know yours?

Eligible for the Best Junior Group award.
