Description

A loud, vibrant and unashamed examination of what it’s like to be a teenager, exploring those years that change us the most. Drawing upon the life experiences of the cast, interwoven with cognitive neuroscientist Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore’s research, we combine scientific analysis with funny, brave and honest accounts. Devised by an all-female cast from Croydon High and directed by Maddy Corner (She, Trade), Brainstorm punctuates science with art and feeling. The Ivy Players return to Edinburgh Fringe after their previous four-star show, She. Brainstorm is an acclaimed production that once again puts young people and their stories centre-stage.

The teenage brain, in a nutshell. Based on scientific research, a lively exploration of what it is to be a teen. Definitely learned something. Loads of funny bits, particularly the impressions of the teenage cast's parents! A must-see for teens and their parents.
