Boundless Theatre presents
by Judy Upton
Mixtapes, Argos catalogue Christmas lists, VHS. Crop tops, chokers, disposable cameras, Boundless Theatre is bringing the 90s back.
As another summer season on the seafront gets underway Ella is turning up the heat in a high stakes game to get as far away as possible.
Whilst Ruby keeps the café going and Dean mans the ice cream kiosk Ella learns there’s no fast track to success.
‘If you’re not interested in earning a new pair of Nikes by the end of the day…complete designer wardrobe by the end of the week…all the beers you can drink…if you don’t want to meet Uma Thurman… then okay, stay here, as King of the Slackers, that’s fine by me.’
Confidence, first produced at Birmingham Rep in 1998 will explode back on to stage, for a new generation of dreamers.
Age Guidance: 14+
‘Upton’s a playful writer who likes nothing better than to upset expectations’ Independent
★★★★ ‘An intriguing and surprising insight into millennial angst, ‘Natives’ inspires sympathy for a generation that’s wrongly perceived as invincible.’ Time Out
★★★★ ‘Rob Drummer’s smart production keeps things very simple and unfurls with the tension of a thriller in 90 minutes that gets right inside the confusions and emotional complexities of the teenage mind.’ The Guardian
