Is My Microphone On?

Simon Langton Grammar School For Boys perform a brand-new play as part of National Theatre Connections.

How do we move forward from here? Young people know that time is running out, and they will no longer be able to avoid the consequences of climate change. They speak to the adults in the audience, holding them to account, questioning the choices they have made and the choices that have not been made, and the decisions that children will be forced to make. What kind of future do they stand to inherit?
