The Trials

In the near future a jury of young people hold their elders to account for crimes against the planet.

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?

“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.”

Premiered in the UK in a sell-out run at The Donmar Warehouse last summer, the baton is now passed to The Marlowe to create this new made-in-Kent production using the same environmentally-sustainable principles and with the young cast members in the jury drawn from local talent through county-wide workshops and auditions.

Auditions to find the young cast of 12 jurors will take place throughout May. They are open to everyone aged 12-21 and will be relaxed, friendly group workshops. You will not need to prepare anything in advance, no previous experience of performing is required and training will be provided as part of the project.

Sign up for the auditions, find out more about what to expect on the day and the time commitment needed to take part by visiting The Trials Project page.

The show contains strong language and themes that some people may find upsetting.
