Castaways Three teenagers – born on the same day, in the same town but with very different backgrounds. Inseparable since they were knee-high to a grasshopper, they’re a close-knit trio, both at school and at home. Sam, Asha and Kieran watch out for each other, until one day a shocking event blows their teenage world apart – and their friendship with it. Castaways explores the nature of friendship, trauma and tribal loyalties in a neighbourhood where the blue touch paper is waiting to be lit… Written by award-winning playwright Atiha Sen Gupta,this challenging new play has been developed through creative workshops with young people, exploring their sense of connectedness – or otherwise – with the communities they have grown up in.
