“Alecky Blythe’s unique verbatim techniques were last seen at the National Theatre in the improbable but wonderful musical, London Road, based on testimony from Ipswich residents dealing with the aftermath of the murders of five women in their neighbourhood. Now she returns in a co-production with Chichester Festival Theatre to chart the lives of 12 young people talking about their lives as they leave childhood behind and face adulthood. Blythe always describes her work as “a painting of people, not a photograph,” and just as in all great paintings, her work at its best captures something secret and true about individuals and their lives.”

Overview

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.
