‘I just need someone to hear these words to know what it’s like for me and people like me.’
Unmute is an arresting and essential collection of contemporary monologues written by young people, for young people.
In the wake of the pandemic the theatre company LUNG, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and Salamander Street launched a call out for 11-18 year olds in order to find the next generation of socially engaged playwrights. This anthology features fresh and original young writing talent from across the UK.
Investigating mental health, sexuality, racism, culture, class, unrequited love and so much more, these remarkable voices unflinchingly tackle some of the most pressing issues young people face today.
Packed with fury, honesty and playfulness, this is a collection from a generation that won’t be silenced and will be heard.
All profits from this book will go towards future projects with young people.
