The Marlowe
The Trials
A Marlowe Theatre production in partnership with The Donmar Warehouse

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.

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