Lent Week 1
'Genuine smiles aren't actually about the eyes; they're about the muscles around the eyes. Train those and you can pretend to enjoy just about anything... like Travel Scrabble or physical contact.'
By turns both laugh-out-loud funny and tragic, The Study of Young Men is a new play written by Adam McNally. It centres on Anthony, a man caught up in the breakdown of his friendship with his schoolmates, Rob, Charlie and Jonah. Trying to write down all that has happened between his friends, Anthony's memories come to life around him. As the play progresses, he desperately tries to keep control of his renegade memories, which appear to be developing their own personalities and points of view.
The Study of Young Men gives the opportunity for four actors to work on an ensemble piece with four meaty parts, incorporating comedy, physical theatre and tragic moments.
