    National Theatre Connections 2017

    Three by Harriet Braun / Kirkcaldy High School

    It’s a long, hot summer. Six teenagers are in various states of lust, longing and unrequited love. A boy has a crush on the girl next door; only she’s going out with the school heartthrob. Two teenagers meet for a blind date but they’re both thinking about someone else. A shy girl with a secret makes friends with the most popular girl in her class. Only these are love stories with a difference: thanks to the inner voice trailing around after each character, we get to hear what they’re all saying and thinking. Fortunately there’s a narrator to keep us all on track, but there’s a small problem: our narrator would much rather be on reality TV.

    The Monstrum by Kellie Smith / Indelible Arts

    In a cold village on the edge of nowhere, a disease has broken out, infecting the young and transforming them into monstrous creatures. The villagers fearfully watch their children for symptoms of the disease, whilst the Mayor has adopted tough measures for dealing with those who are infected. When Bolek, the local scholar, makes a breakthrough in finding a cure, few are prepared for the gruesome nature of the treatment. But with his own daughter showing signs of infection, there is no choice than to stop this terrible disease dead in its tracks. A gothic melodrama about the terrifying onset of adolescence.
