Description

A brand-new play about the future. Olly Hawes' absurd comedy takes a sideways look at the lives of modern teenagers on the brink of futures they can't yet begin to imagine. A cast of 21 talented young actors present a wildly satirical vision of modern society: vapid, vacuous and vain. Angst-ridden, self-mocking and desperately ambitious, this dystopian comedy points a finger at the young, the old and everyone in between. Dysfunction abounds and nothing makes very much sense any more in this bleak comedy for the alternative age.

The Student Newspaper 34 days ago

21 Futures is a highly provocative piece of new writing that opens up a much-needed discourse between teenagers and their parents. Intelligent, dry satire provides a perfect foundation from which the young performers’ of the Macready Theatre reproach the older generation, leaving the audience with a clear and purposefully uncomfortable message: they should have done better.
