Edinburgh Fringe Preview
Hal is 17 and in the middle of a meltdown. Trying to come to terms with the loss of her mother, struggling to relate to her sister and father, becoming angry and frustrated in school. But she’s still a typical teenager, going through all the typical tribulations of adolescence: Ned is infatuated by her (or at least the idea of her and of being ‘with’ someone); Penny is obsessed with Eliza; Eliza just loves to cause trouble and wind them all up; Jo is simply hoping for her first kiss. Through her odd group of friends dealing with their own teenage angst, through trial and error, she’s just trying to find a sense of herself.
Playwright Siofra Dromgoole has been especially commissioned by St Edward’s School to create If It Didn’t Matter, a tale of loss, friendship, rebellion, self-destruction and finally, realisation. Produced and performed by emerging young company Cup and Dagger Productions, If It Didn’t Matter is a dynamic, moving and funny new play exploring timeless themes of the teenage experience through a vibrant, moving and often comic modern text.
