    youthquake noun
    A significant cultural, political or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people.

    Three young Scottish playwrights from the Traverse Young Writers’ group join forces with three leading British writers to explore a pressing question of our time: how can the younger generation be a catalyst for social and political change?

    Paired with pieces from their professional mentors, this brave new body of work from young voices is a defiant demand to be seen as more than avocado-fuelled millennials.

    Kick start your festival day with these script-in-hand readings, and enjoy a breakfast roll and tea/coffee with your ticket.
