“I AM…” is a brand new play, devised and written by the young people of Stage2 in a first for the company. Through interviews, workshops, devising sessions, improvisations and discussions, the Cast and Crew of diverse young people have tackled some of the biggest issues facing young people (and the world!), reflecting the real voices and experiences of young people today.
In this show, we explore the ‘I’ in Diversity. What does it mean to be an individual? How easy has technology made it to navigate the world? How much has the world and the way we treat each other really changed? We answer all of this, and more, in a vibrant burst of youthful energy.
‘Trying to be normal is the most normal thing you can do.’
Presented to you are three days in the life of Allie and Ben – two teens trying to navigate the ever-changing world and understand where they fit into it. Helping the audience along the way are a Chorus of youth, serving as your guides to the narrative and debating the big questions.
‘…unashamedly non-partisan political undertones, but then again if youngsters can’t engage with politics who can? After all they are the ones who will have to sort out the mess we leave.’
