House of Common by Boundless Theatre

By Laura Dockrill

A Boundless Theatre production

‘Adults actually give way more grief than young people, you know, it’s never a young person that I seem to lock horns with on an opinion- always adults. Always the older generation with their prehistoric way of thinking, shoving their pokey oars in with their dusty old points of view…and they tell us to be wary of each other but no… adults…they are the ones we truly have to watch out for.’

In the most recent general election, the overwhelming majority of voters are now aged 16-25; wanting to listen and engage this new youth vote, the government has invited six teenagers to a unique social experiment.

Pitching a manifesto to their peers, only one can emerge as the acting MP, but what’s the catch? Will power really be shared and who or what is beyond the two way mirrored glass in this otherwise average common room?
