A symphony of dislocated and interconnected scenes, in which a series of characters search for meaning in a complicated and unstable world.
A girl is locked in a room. A boy brings another boy flowers. A girl has tied herself to a railing. A boy doesn’t know who he is. A girl worries about impending catastrophe. A woman jumps in front of a train. A boy’s heart falls out his chest. A butterfly has a broken wing.
Written specifically for young people, Chaos formed part of the 2019 National Theatre Connections Festival and was premiered by youth theatres across the UK. The play offers rich opportunities for a large, flexible cast of young performers.
