As part of Young Europe III, Pesti Magyar Szinház in Budapest (Hungary) collaborated with the theatres Badisches Staatstheater in Karlsruhe (Germany) and Slovak National Drama Theatre in Bratislava (Slovakia). Together, they researched the views of young people today across their three countries. They have each created a performance inspired by young people’s ideas of identity and their visions of the future. See details of the other two performances in this collaboration on our Performances page.
How do young people see how they can equip their lives in a world where there are no adults - perhaps because of an apocalyptic disaster? How can they communicate with each other, survive when there is no parental control over them?
The Hungarian play's playwright is Péter Deres, the playwright of the Pest Hungarian Theater, and the production will be directed by Illés Horváth in the autumn of 2019. The theme of the piece is how young people see it, when there are no adults - perhaps because of an apocalyptic disaster. How can they communicate with them?
