every adolescent brain, 86 billion neurons connect and collide to
produce the most frustrating, chaotic and exhilarating changes that will
ever happen to us.
Brainstorm is a unique theatrical investigation into how
teenagers’ brains work, and why they’re designed by evolution to be the
way they are.
Created by Ned Glasier and Emily Lim with Company Three (formerly
Islington Community Theatre), in collaboration with neuroscientists
Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore and Dr Kate Mills, the play is designed
to be created and performed by a company of teenagers, drawing directly
on their personal experiences.
This edition contains a series of exercises, resources and activities
to help schools, youth-theatre groups and young companies create and
perform their own Brainstorm. It also features the complete
script of the original production which played at Park Theatre and the
National Theatre, London, in 2015.
