Phones come to life with the buzz of a new message, a new email, a Facebook update. A single photo…
This time-shifting play explores young characters today and in the past, the sexual labels they give and judge each other with and the complex and contradictory choices they make in expressing themselves.
The play has been written as part of a unique partnership between Birmingham Repertory Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse and Theatre Royal Plymouth. Young people from each of the three theatres have worked with the award-winning Evan Placey’ to develop ideas for the play and each young company will produce the play in Summer 2013.

Young REP Playwrights present

One hundred years is a very long time, and the Birmingham Repertory Theatre has stood for all of it. After every performance the audiences flock to the bar, keen to discuss the performance they have just seen. How has Birmingham changed in the last hundred years? And have the people changed too?
Eclectic pieces of new writing by the Young REP Playwrights, a group of aspiring writers from Birmingham.
