Alecky Blythe follows the success of London Road with her astonishing new verbatim play that tells the stories of a generation.
Created from five years of interviews with 12 young people from across the UK, Our Generation is a captivating portrait of their journey into adulthood.
Often too extraordinary to be fiction, this funny and moving play is for anyone who is – or has ever been – a teenager.
Making his directorial debut at the National Theatre, Daniel Evans leads the team in this co-production with Chichester Festival Theatre.
A beautiful and funny journey
Magnificent verbatim account of teenage life
Fascinating and funny
Frank, fond tribute to the agony and ecstasy of generation Snapchat
An undeniably ambitious undertaking and worthy of high admiration
A magnificent technical achievement and a unique theatrical experience
Pertinent verbatim theatre
The performances are exquisite
Like Grange Hill but without the plot discipline
Its sheer ambition also its greatest weakness
