Theatre / 21 February - 03 March 2012


Tickets: 12
Show Time: 8:15pm

Presented by Edwina Casey

Growing up is hard.
Awkward silences when you want to talk, really talk, to people your own age, people who are just as confused and bewildered as you are. Teetering on the edge of riot and raging against the collapse of society, a place that will never live up to your teenage dreams. So what’s the point?
In the basement of an abandoned factory four members of a teenage band meet to rehearse and a deep, dark and revealing journey of unspoken tension, hidden emotion and adolescent rivalry unfolds.
Written by Jon Fosse and translated by David Harrower, this is a rare opportunity to see a play by the world’s most performed playwright.
There will be a post show discussion with the Director of Purple Edwina Casey and Project Arts Centre Director in Residence Annabelle Comyn following the performance on Thursday 23 February.
