STAGE – Burn / Chatroom / Citizenship 2006

Three brief, incisive, and provoking pieces that focus on the drama of teenagers’ lives. Intensely sensitive to the potential and pressures faced on the cusp of adulthood, the plays are straightforward and honest. In Burn, a lonesome foster child asks a young woman out on a disastrous date in a stolen car. On a riverbank one day, the friends he never had recount the events of his memorable final day. Chatroom – Six 15-year-olds type and converse online. A terrifying and compelling story of manipulation and the pinnacle of adolescent defiance. Citizenship is a sad comedy about growing up that centers on a boy’s honest and clumsy quest to figure out his sexual orientation.

Reviews - What they say

"The actors are young and astoundingly good"

"You come out talking of Andrew Garfield and Matt Smith as much as of the plays...these are the best new plays"

Alastair Macaulay
Financial Times

"..beautifully played, once again by Andrew Garfield"

"Matt Smith as the cynical word-master and Andrew Garfield as his bewildered victim give unforgettable performances."
