UK PREMIERE

Favoured? Honest? Full of promise?

Bratsberg is a man of tradition. He thinks manners; knowledge and education are the foundations of a good society…but are his values dated? Monsen is an entrepreneur who believes success comes from hard work…but can he be trusted? Stensgard wants change. He is convinced that society belongs to its people…but will his naïve plans land him in hot water?

Ibsen’s political comedy has long been praised for its sparkling wit and cynical humour. But The League of Youth is uncanny in the mirror it holds up to present-day Britain, where every promise leads to compromise in the rush to snatch a share of the power.

A brand new adaptation by Andy Barrett (Garage Band, The Day That Kevin Came) finds fresh satire and contemporary reflections in this rarely-seen comic gem.

Part of Nottingham European Arts and Theatre Festival (neat11)
