What’s coming up . . . .
Western Gold presents the North American premiere of Matthew Whittet’s ground-breaking play Seventeen in which veteran stage actors take on the roles of teenagers and revisit what it is like to be young and on the brink of life at a pivotal moment.
Picture a playground after the end of the very last day of school just before everyone moves on. As dawn approaches, and through a fog of cheap beer, dreams are shared, insecurities aired, and secrets spilled. For each character it is a phoenix moment—everything is about to change! But tonight, they drink, they dance, they shout, and they love. Seventeen provides a sense of déjà vu and brilliantly turns our notions of adulthood and adolescence on their head.
