Company of Angels: Four Plays by John Retallack by John Retallack
Book DescriptionIn "Hannah and Hanna" having escaped from Kosovo, Hanna, 16 meets Hannah, 16, from Margate. An unlikely friendship develops when they find that music is a common bond between them despite their different cultures and circumstances. "Virgins" explores issues of sexuality for young people: How do you explore your sexuality when you are still living at home with your parents? How do your parents sustain their love life with you in the house? And why do we find it so difficult to talk about? "Risk" asks how young people can discover their limits, how can they find out who they are? It asks why young people are drawn to danger; why they risk their freedom, their bodies, their minds and their futures, through dangerous activities and crime. "Club Asylum" is a devised dance theatre piece about teenage asylum seekers in Glasgow based on research with both young asylum seekers and residents. This is a thrilling fusion of dance, theatre and music.
