the play’s theme: ‘lt’s about three young Merseyside lads who can't cope with growing up because the world

they live in has nothing to otter them.

They try to escape into an alternative reality-the televisual world, the world at pep video. It's partly about how 16

. year olds have loads of potential

creative energy that is not channelled by the system. Because the play was dealing with how telly dominates the

- consciousness of young people, I

t . thoughlitmightbe challengingto use

another medium. It stretches what you

; can do with theatre.’

The action on the screens will partly

3 develop on the action on stage— locussing in on a character’s reaction,

lor example. With its combination ol naturalism and stylisation, the play

will be a development too for writer Jim f

Morris (whose ‘Blood on the Dole' was greatly acclaimed). It’s the fourth play on which they have collaborated, and Broughton has also worked closely with designer Lez Brotherston, one of the designers at ‘Letterto Brezhnev‘. ‘He’s done very little theatre much more opera and lilm. I wanted a designerwith a lot at experience in non-naturalistic theatre. We certainly learned a great deal!’ (8 Hemming)
