Inspire Poetry Festival 2018: Renaissance One presents 'God Save the Teen'

  • West Bridgford Library Bridgford Road Nottingham, England, NG2 6AP United Kingdom (map)

A troubled teenage son and his distant single father fight their way through a bitterly indifferent relationship in a funny and moving coming of age show about growing up and sometimes getting it wrong. Poet and former youth worker Andrew Graves relates a drama of gob-smackingly embarrassing and awkward first dates, imagined rock-n-roll supermarkets, divorce, disillusion and working-class rebellion. Expect disappearing goths, sadistic PE teachers and a search for the truth and somewhere to belong.

Whether a teenager or not, everyone will be able to relate to this honest and nostalgic prayer to that joyously painful, pimple-faced period in our lives where everything and nothing seems possible; where you can be earnest, sensitive, beautiful and ridiculous all at the same time.
