If This Is Normal
August 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Growing up in Kilburn, siblings Madani, Maryam and school mate Alex hit it off from the moment they meet. 10 years later, playful chats about ninja turtles and bobble pens have been kicked out by teen opinions powered by podcasts, porn and politics. Still, best friends can talk about anything. So why are there suddenly so many unspoken thoughts between the three? A critically acclaimed play direct from the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 and VAULT 2020 about teenagers crashing into the modern world.
Chatback Theatre are excited to be bringing a special one-off outdoor edition of the show to The New Normal Festival as part of a double bill with Isabelle Farah’s Ellipsis! Suitable for ages 12+. Trigger warnings available on request.
