Anarchy is Coming...

Live Theatre are launching their new season with the explosive world premiere of ‘We Are The Best!’. Brace yourselves…

If you’re thinking ‘We Are The Best!’ – I’m sure I’ve heard that name before, then you’d be right. It was a 2013 Swedish film, directed by Lukas Moodysson and based on the acclaimed comic book ‘Never Goodnight’, and it became an international sensation. Lauded for its “joyous heart-swelling story of youthful rebellion” (New York Times) the cult comedy is about finding your voice, the power of friendship, and the joy of sticking two fingers up at a society that tries to define you. It has been adapted for stage by major upcoming talent Rebecca Glendenning (Bonnie and Fanny’s Christmas Spectacular, BonBons Cabaret) and it tells the story of friends and misfits Bobo and Klara. Tired of being oppressed by their classmates, parents and teachers, they decide to start a band with Hedwig – the shyest girl in school. They don’t know how to play, but, hey, they still aim to change the world. GM

We Are The Best! 26 May-18 June, Live Theatre, Newcastle, 7.30pm (+ some mats.), from £6. www.live.org.uk
