No One Will Tell Me How to Start a Revolution | Wardrobe Theatre


‘Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them’… But what about the rest of us?


Suzie, Edwina and Lucy’s lives are upended when their family move from a council estate to an affluent, suburban town. Starting out afresh at a new school, the teenagers battle to find a place for themselves. But when the odds stack up against them, can they truly break out of the boxes that society has put them in?


Luke Barnes dissects ideas of class, social mobility and identity in this poignant and funny portrait of self discovery.
