For Parents with bigger kids
While this brutally play is targeted towards parents with older kids, it is a timeless story that seeks to explore one of society’s pressing concerns—mental health—especially among youths.
16 year old Nicolas, a once lively boy becomes silent, sullen and secretive in face of his parents’ divorce. His behaviour becomes erratic as he is forced to go back and forth between them. He further spirals into emotional and mental despair and feels that “life is weighing him down”. Is the the stage of “just being a teenager”? The story unfolds further as Nicolas’ parents step in to take desperate measures.
