The Customs House Youth Theatre (Senior Group) presents… How to Explode
By Alex Oates
“Look at all those stars out there Bex, they don’t ask permission to shine. Nor should we.”
South Shields, 2018, 2 groups of teenagers navigate their last night of college dealing with lost OAP’s, Ghost hunting, thigh gaps and what to do with the rest of their lives. Meanwhile 200 years ago another group of teenagers try to carve out their identity while back in the present a young man talks to a stranger on the internet about how to blow them all away. How To Explode is a new play that examines what it is to be on the brink of adulthood throughout time and how to leave a lasting impression on the world.
