What the kids are up to after dark…

A lyrical examination of that delicate period where the potential of youth meets the reality of the world, URBAN HYMNS is about the time in life when our choices start to define us. Money talks in Joseph’s neighbourhood and the market place rules. But when he can no longer make the cut Joseph turns to Tobias for an answer and together they make the first worst decision of their lives. Survival and greed, art and music, drugs and crime – in URBAN HYMNS everyone is searching for their own particular version of freedom.

The Young & Hungry Festival of New Theatre began at BATS in 1994. Since then we have produced over 40 new New Zealand plays for the BATS stage and launched 100’s of careers in the Theatre.

In 2009 Young & Hungry are fulfilling a long-held dream, for the first time ever, thanks to a new partnership with Auckland Theatre Company, all three Young and Hungry plays will be performed con-currently in Auckland and Wellington, three plays, two cities, over 100 young, hungry theatre-makers - we are not just hungry, we’re ravenous!

The unique aspect of the Young & Hungry system is the mentoring programme, where industry professionals such as Glenn Ashworth (Lighting), Thomas Press (Sound), Bex Joyce (Costume), Meggan Frauenstein (Set), Lori Leigh (Stage Management) and Brianne Kerr (Publicity) provide young people with a broad range of skills and practical experience to create, participate and appreciate all aspects of theatre-making.

Join us in 2009 for our 15th Festival - it’s going to be a big party!
