Acclaimed Australian writer Matthew Whittet’s Seventeen comes to the Lyric Hammersmith from 4 March.
Set in that time after the end of the last day of school, but just before everyone moves on, it explores the cusp of adulthood, the cusp of complete change.
Jess is Mike’s girlfriend. Tom is Mike’s best friend, but he’s secretly in love with Jess. Emilia is Jess’s goody-two-shoes best friend and she’s about to get drunk for the first time. Lizzy is Mike’s annoying younger sister. And Ronny, well no-one invited Ronny and no one’s quite sure why he’s there. As dawn approaches, through a fog of cheap beer, dreams are shared, insecurities aired and secrets spilled...
Written by Matthew Whittet and directed by Anne-Louise Sarks, Seventeen is performed by a cast of septuagenarians. Funny, immature, wise and a little bit sad, it will turn your notions of adulthood and adolescence on their head.
