WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Directed by Academy Award winner Danny Boyle, The Children's Monologues are based on the stories of children growing up in Rammulotsi, a small rural township in the Free State province of South Africa. Invited to describe a day that they will never forget, the work recounts the personal experiences of these young people expressed in their own words — sometimes harrowing, sometimes uplifting, and always moving.
Adapted for the stage by an impressive list of Academy Award-, Pulitzer Prize-, Tony Award-, and BAFTA-winning writers, including Lynn Nottage, Neil LaBute, David Hare, Tom Stoppard, Jack Thorne, Laura Wade, and others, the production gives audience members a powerful glimpse into a world in which young people are forced to grapple with astonishing challenges as each cast member steps forward to give the voiceless a voice, performing their stories.
