The Changing Room

Changing Room

Are we teenagers? Are we children? What are we? It’s about bodies in flux and perspectives shifting; knowing change is coming but not what that change will look like.

Set in and around a swimming pool, The Changing Room follows a group of teens full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and desires for what comes next..

This will be the sixth NT Connections Play by Thurso High School and we would be delighted if you can support us.

An anonymous hack – an act of sabotage or revenge – kicks off a chain of events that changes the whole of society.

Suddenly a group of young people must learn how to survive in a world where the private has become public, everyone’s data is out there for all to see, and a person’s every action can apparently be predicted. As the temptation grows to spy on their peers, they must confront the question: do we ever really know each other?
