"Morning shows us the world as it is, not how we fondly imagine it to be. Only its title detains us with hope: little comfort but perhaps enough." (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian)

The Academy’s School of Drama students take on the challenge of this stunning contemporary drama under the direction of award-winning director, alumnus and Senior Lecturer in Directing, Roy Szeto.

“When I was looking for a play which can represent the world as it is today, I came across Morning. Perhaps we will be able to see hope shining through this dark and dystopic world,” said Szeto.

Simon Stephens' play Morning is as bold and shocking as it is thoughtful and disturbing. Written for and with teenagers at London's Hammersmith Theatre, and later presented to enormous critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival in 2012, it explores the motiveless malignity of teenagers who find themselves marooned in a world of meaninglessness. Like many recent plays and movies, it attempts to give voice to the random acts of violence seemingly glibly perpetrated by teenagers on peers, siblings and strangers. But unlike many recent attempts, Simon Stephens, by working with young people, finds a thoughtful and resonating authenticity that makes the audience think as well as witnessing acts of a generation desperately lost but searching for unconditional answers.
