Bait
Created by the 14 – 18s Young Company
Directed by Beth Shouler

Be good, be beautiful, be clever, be fit, be healthy, be a leader, be popular, be successful.
Fulfil your potential.
Record it. Prove it.
Do not buckle under the pressure...
They buckled.

On a drizzly Monday when it all got a bit much they met.
Anonymously.
Online.
And got creative.

Stacked
Created by the 18 – 25s Young Company
Directed by Beth Shouler

You find a room. You watch tele and order take aways. You buy Ikea furniture or nick bits off your gran and make cleaning rotas. You become best friends with your housemates. You move in with your girlfriend. You work entry level jobs in solicitors offices doing data entry. You take on extra jobs. You have parties and arguments. You fall in love. You fall out of love. You have pregnancy scares and bouts of flu. And the space gets smaller as more people move in. You discover music and culture. You discover passive aggression and people who steal your posh yoghurts. You discover political difference. You discover the values you grew up with clash with your housemates. You get lonely. You stop eating. You overeat. You volunteer in the community. You pay vast amounts of rent. You get into debt. You host monopoly nights and get the giggles drinking cheap wine. And you must document the joy on social media and hide the scary sad bits from everybody. You'll be fine. You'll be fine. You'll be fine.

You're twenty-something.

The world is your oyster.

The streets are paved with gold.

You can smell opportunity in the air along with diesel fumes and fried chicken.

You've found a room in London. Your adult life begins.
