Connections 2022: Superglue
Superglue tells the story of a group of climate activists gathering at a woodland burial ground to say goodbye to a friend who died during a protest.
As they gather, they erect banners and talk about their pasts and their futures, about peaceful action versus violent action, about how society dismisses them and undervalues their cause. Initially, we believe these activists are the age of the actors playing them. Gradually, we realise that this is the story of an elderly climate action group – elderly characters performed without imitation by young actors.
Parallels are drawn between old age and adolescence in a play that gently invites an intergenerational understanding of the future of our planet.
Suitable for ages 13+
