Age is revolting

by Abi Zakarian
Sat 13th Apr 4:00 pm £12.50 Auditorium Theatre

Choir is for mad old people, right?

When a group of school kids rebel against their boring music lesson they hit the wrong note and magically transform into their 80 year-old selves…and now live in a care home. Suddenly age, and their understanding of it, feels very relevant as they begin to confusedly navigate their way back to the present; no longer older, but maybe just a little wiser.

Abi Zakarian is an award-winning British-Armenian playwright born and raised in Derby, now based in London. Her plays include: Found, produced by 45North for their Written on the Waves series of audio plays; Perfect Myth Allegory at Jermyn Street Theatre for the ‘15 Heroines’ series; A Thousand Yards at Southwark Playhouse, and I Am Karyan Ophidian for the Sam Wanamaker Theatre at Shakespeare’s Globe.

The play is performed as part of The National Theatre’s Connections Festival and this is the Home Performance by The Pauline Quirke Academy, Burton, before the festival later in the spring.
