Blackout, Paperback


This play can be performed with any number of characters, and with simple settings.

Inspired by the true stories of a young offender from Glasgow, a 15 year old who had committed a violent crime, this short play was part of the National Theatre's "New Connections" programme which commissions plays about and for young people and was presented to critical acclaim at the Royal National Theatre.

It's a hard-hitting play about 'getting bullied, fighting back, trying to make a name for yourself, turning vicious, doing something stupid, losing everything, then finding your way again'.

The play can be performed as a monologue or with any number of actors and the staging can be as simple or elaborate as desired.
