A group of friends gather on stage.
Ringing phones demand attention, interrupting from their other lives.
A classroom back Home, first day of term.
Whispers spread that a student is missing.
In a dusty market, a girl weighs her mother’s gold jewellery to sell.
With no safety net, no right to work and debts to pay, how do they focus on building a future? When it’s a choice between going to college or earning money, what gives? How much human potential is compromised by Britain’s ever-tightening hostile environment? This brand new play from Phosphoros Theatre encapsulates the radical joy and skilful storytelling that sees the company resist dominant and reductive media headlines. Vibrant, revealing, curious and bold, Tender shines a light on one of the most pressing issues of our time.
