About the event

Directed by JMK 2017 award winner Josh Roche (My Name Is Rachel Corrie), this poetic and unflinching production is an extraordinary mix of drama and performance poetry set in an Essex school which tells the story of four young people who are forced into adulthood. Through its innovative verse, Plastic examines the creation of urban folklore and the sealed world of adolescence with all its unique pressures – how hard it can be to survive, and how hard it is to be left behind.

Remember the moment you became an adult? Or did you miss it? Kev used to have a girlfriend called Lisa - she wore a fitted blazer and reebok classics and lit up the school yard. Kev used to be the captain of the school football team and he scored the winner in the All-Essex schools cup final. Ben used to get beaten up most days. He stole money from his mum’s purse to pay off ‘Wicksy’. Now he’s an accountant. But Ben always had Jack. His loyal, unbreakable mate Jack. Adults are the kids that survive school right? But what if some kids don’t?
