Matthew Arnold Amateur Dramatics (MAAD) presents The Changing RoomBy Chris Bush directed by Deborah Lockhart
A lyrical piece about existing on the cusp of growing up.
Are we teenagers? Are we children? What are we? It’s about bodies in flux and perspectives shifting; knowing change is coming but not what that change will look like. Set in and around a swimming pool, The Changing Room follows a group of teens full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and desires for what comes next.
Chris Bush – Why I Wrote this Play:
‘In writing this piece I’m trying to capture something of the hormonal rush and sensory overload of adolescence in all its messy and magical glory. While no two teenagers are the same, ultimately I wanted to show that this is an experience no-one goes through alone.
