Three countries. Three teenagers. One average, life-altering day.

A young man battles with feelings of love and violence. Another is stuck with the image of someone being pushed from a rooftop. And a girl must choose between her friends and her conscience.

Natives is a rallying cry to a generation of unlikely heroes, and celebrates coming of age online in a chaotic world. It premiered at Southwark Playhouse in March 2017, produced by Boundless Theatre and directed by Rob Drummer.

'Where are the grown-ups to do something, where are the grown-ups in this story?'

Press Quotes

'Waldron's writing is incredible. It is a mix of the political, emotional, and philosophical, packed with pace and utterly uncompromising'

A Younger Theatre

'A play with twists, turns and shocks running through it… these stories will stay with you long after the play has finished. A fascinating and highly watchable piece of work'

'Natives holds nothing back, the tension is palpable, the narratives are raw and the rhythm of the piece is skilfully orchestrated... every secondary school drama teacher needs to read this play'

'A powerful cry for help on behalf of youngsters needing to be saved from the crazy world that they are about to inherit… writing [has a] thrilling energy… an up-to-date morality play that never preaches but entertains and enthrals throughout'

The Reviews Hub

'A brilliant view onto what it means to grow up as a Millennial, with all the perils that entails… in a theatrical landscape largely focused on adults and their struggles, it's refreshing to have a play that holds as its main focus the everyday lives of our youngest generation. It doesn't condemn nor hail the world they live in, their dependence on gadgets, or their ways of communicating and engaging, but simply presents their issues as real and unconditionally valid. Waldron gives teenagers the right to feel'
