What does it mean to be a teenager today? What's it like to bid your childhood innocence farewell and enter the 'adult' world? If you wrote a letter to your parents, how would you tell them what they already know but pretend not to? What sort of a letter would you write to love? To boredom? To anger? To fear? To your self?
The talented director and educator, Georgia Mavragani, and her Happy End theatre company initiate us into the fascinating world of adolescence in this singular devised theatre production. Teenagers have driven the creative process, sharing with the team their dreams and struggles, their favourite lyrics, music and writing through interviews, workshops and a blog set up especially for the project. Above all, these young people have lent Mavragani their captivating voices and become co-creators of a caustic, unique, moving production in which a small teenage chorus employs forms that allow them to address the audience directly—the letter, the satirical song—and entrust their secret to us... at a whisper, because it's priceless.
