Bright. Young. Things. (Platform Play)

By Georgia Christou

Paperback £8.99£7.19

EPUB £8.99£7.19

On a reality television show, six remarkable – and remarkably young – geniuses are competing for the coveted Golden Brain trophy and the title ‘Britain’s Brainiest Child’. As the contestants battle it out round after round, the pressure mounts, the spotlight gets harsher, and each is faced with questions they were never expecting. Who will win and who will lose – and what exactly does winning mean anyway?

Georgia Christou’s Bright. Young. Things. is a funny, fast-paced play about identity, truth and the challenge of finding out who you really are. It is part of Platform, an initiative from Tonic Theatre in partnership with Nick Hern Books. Aimed at achieving greater gender equality in theatre, Platform comprises big-cast plays with predominantly, or all, female casts, written specifically for performance by young actors.

‘People don’t like it when things come easier to you. They don’t like being around someone who makes them feel stupid. They don’t like… me.’

Press Quotes

British Theatre Guide

'[Offers] strikingly different characters and an effective storyline... a young, brilliant director could do wonders with this'

Broadway World

'A clever piece about identity, parental pressure and the media... has much humour and tremendous energy'
