Look Up Audition 2019


“Look Up” by Andrew Muir

Sunday 12th January – St Edwards School, Tilehurst Road.
12.45pm – 4.30pm age 13+

Cast size: 10, characters are 4F, 5M and one gender fluid, but can be gender-swapped as necessary. Recommended for ages 13+.

Look Up plunges us into a world free from adult intervention, supervision and protection. It’s about seeking the truth for yourself and finding the space to find and be yourself. Nine young people are creating new rules for what they hope will be a new and brighter future full of hope in a world in which they can trust again.

Each one of them is unique, original and defiantly individual, break into an abandoned building and set about claiming the space, because that is what they do. They have rituals, they have rules, together they are a tribe, they have faith in themselves & and nothing and no one else.

They are the future, unless the real world catches up with them and then all they can hope for is that they don't crash and burn like the adults they ran away from in the first place.

The National Theatre commissions established playwrights to write their next new play; the only proviso is that teenagers will be performing them. Whether through comedy, tragedy or thriller, physical theatre, verbatim or musical, these plays inspire debate and stimulate teenage minds.

It's no surprise the first division playwrights queue up to write for New Connections... It's the best possible advertisement for theatre, young people, and their teachers.
