Some of you will remember Foxfinder, Dawn King’s terrific play which premiered at the Finborough. She’s back with a new one, already seen to acclaim in Europe and directed by Natalie Abrahami. It’s a play about climate crisis with an interesting premise: a jury of 12 young people consider the guilt of older generations. Twelve young Londoners make their stage debut in this production alongside a professional cast including Sharon Small, Lucy Cohu and Nigel Lindsay.
"It’s easy for you to accuse me now but you don’t understand. Everyone lived like we did! Well maybe not everyone, everyone. But…I wasn’t any worse than anyone else." The near future. The climate crisis is unfolding and our generation is being judged. The jurors? Children. But are they delivering justice, or serving revenge? A Donmar Local Production: identifying talent of the future and proudly platforming them and the issues that matter. The Trials received its world première at the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus in 2021, and was a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize. The Trials Young Assistants’ Programme is generously supported by the Backstage Trust. Age Recommendation: 15+
