Burn/Chatroom/Citizenship archiveThree short, sharp and provocative plays where the drama of teenagers' lives take centre stage. Direct and honest, the plays are intensely alive to the possibilities and pressures faced on the verge of adulthood. Originally developed by the NT Shell Connections 2005 programme. Burn - A loner in foster-care asks out a girl on an ill-fated date in a stolen car. One day, on the riverbank, the friends he never had narrate the story of his dramatic last day. Chatroom - In cyberspace six 15-year-olds type and chat. A chilling and powerful tale of manipulation and the ultimate act of teenage rebellion. Citizenship - A bittersweet comedy about growing up, following a boy's frank and messy search to discover his sexual identity. Each plays lasts approximately 50 mins.
