Connections 2018: Want

Barney Norris and his theatre company Up in Arms champion work that reaches out into forgotten rural communities. His play locates itself firmly in that world.

Ross wants Jenny, but Jenny wants adventure. Heather wants Claire to get better and Claire wants a normal life. Gabby wants to go to uni but worries about her brother. Mark and Chris just want something to do.

Want tells the stories of a constellation of young people through a series of charged, longing exchanges. A cycle of characters try to decide what kind of life is waiting for them.

Performed by St. Brendan’s Sixth Form College (Bristol)

Age guidance: 14+ years
