"This is a play about us. It’s about our brains. And it’s about you.”

The growing brain has always been a mystery – until now.

Combining the research of neuroscientists and our performers’ own stories, Brainstorm explores the chaotic brain chemistry operating inside the adolescent mind. Semi-scripted and semi-devised, this innovative and profound show offers up a chance to experience what it is to be a young person – in all its frustrating, exhilarating and painful glory.

Why we love this play

“We’ve all been young and perhaps sometimes we forget what that was like. I’m excited about how this play will speak to other young people but also to the parents and families of the performers. I hope this play brings people together in this shared experience.”
