Award-winning writer Alice Nutter's stage play MY GENERATION opens at West Yorkshire Playhouse on 9th Oct and will run until 26th Oct, with preview performances from 5th Oct.
Cath believes the personal is political. Mick agrees, but he's got much more important things to do with his time than the washing up. The kids, Ben and Emma are less concerned about the class war than they are about having to wear second hand jumpers to school.
Set in Leeds, My Generation is the story of a family and a city through 40 years of alternative culture. From the fear, tension and radical feminism of Leeds during the Yorkshire Ripper, the disillusionment of the Miners' Strike, the drug fuelled hedonism of the 90s and finally the instability and possibilities created by today's economic crisis.
Heartbreak, betrayal and coming out scrapping when all you've got left is pride, My Generation follows people who tried to live differently..
Written by award-winning TV writer Alice Nutter, founder member of Chumbawamba, this witty new play is played out to an explosive mash-up of the best pop from four decades.
