20 - 23 July, The Yard Theatre
It’s like they want to keep us imprisoned.
Because they’re scared of what we’re capable of.
They don’t know what we’re capable of.
I don’t know what I’m capable of.
A group of teenagers, fresh from the stress of their GCSE exams, step out of the narrow confines of our education system and into their first summer of freedom.
This new play is a personal insight into what it feels like to be at school in 2016. It is a celebration of what it means to live in the present and to dream of a different future.
Created and performed by Bethany Timson, Michael Adewale, KJ Gomez-Danso, James Jani, Syntyche Towgomo and Michael Hoang
Produced in association with the Yard Theatre.

"The young performers hold the room with stories and experiences excavated from their own lives and experiences; they let us peep inside their heads and see their hidden dreams and fears....
This show is much more rough and ready than Brainstorm, but it has the same exuberant energy and unfettered honesty, and the beauty of it is that because it’s about the future, it will constantly grow and change, rolling out towards horizons yet unseen and unimagined"
