More Information on What Are They Like?

Adolescence is a rough ride. You’ve got existential angst, mood swings, fashion fiascos, terrifying physical changes, never enough money… And that’s just the parents.

What Are They Like? explores the everyday struggles of parenting, growing up, and the issues that every family faces – in one generation or another. This fast-paced, collection of real-life cautionary tales are brought to the stage by a company of young people aged 11-19 from West Yorkshire Playhouse’s Youth Theatre.

Join us for a post-show discussion on Friday 18 March, with cast and creatives to explore the play, discuss rehearsals, and have your questions answered.

What Are They Like? will be performed as part of the National Theatre Connections Festival (Tue 26 – Sat 30 April) performance date to be announced.

Director Kirsty Pennycook / Designer Antony Jones / Assistant Director Amy Oddy / Volunteer Charlotte Larner /
