In a future when the air has become unbreathable, three adult defendants fight to clear their names.

Called to account as the generation responsible for the unfolding environmental crisis, they are being judged by a jury of 12 teenagers, those paying the price for the actions of their elders. With their own futures hanging in the balance, are they seeking justice or revenge?

This powerful play is co-directed by Omar Khan and Hannah Stone.

Hannah commented: “I’m really excited to assemble a brilliant diverse cast of young people to take on this powerful and important play and support them to perform their socks off at Nottingham Playhouse and Mansfield Palace."
