TEEN examines social and emotional issues faced by contemporary teenagers. Designed to be performed and watched in a high school context, TEEN consists of a selection of short scenes and monologues written within the genre of Epic Theatre.
Issues such as bullying, body image, peer group pressure, jealousy, love, anxiety, friendship struggles, sexuality, relationships with parents, sexting and the loss of a parent are explored.
With 32 scenes and over 60 characters, TEEN is designed for large casts with each actor playing multiple roles. Every scene is based on real life accounts and events; some funny, some challenging, some heartbreaking, but all real.
