With singular skill in articulating the upheavals of adolescence and the self conscious awkwardness that comes in its train, Edmund, sparing nothing, shows us the faught and fragile nature of the teenage psyche.’
Neville Cohn, OZartsreview


Set in England in the 1950s and 60s, we follow the often comic fortunes of a group of kids – from the chaos of primary school to the uniformity of secondary school, sexual awakening and the trials and tribulations of adolescence.
The austerity of post-war Britain gives way to the freedoms and problems of the ‘Swinging Sixties’ as the kids and their parents face a changing world and values.
