Our Parents' Children is a gothic fairytale about a strange girl who thought she could rewrite the past - and the price that we all paid for it.

Once there was a girl called Mary. Mary lived with her father. Mary's mother left when Mary was little, and all she had to remember her by was a lock of hair, kept in a golden necklace.

Mary had a boyfriend, called Joe.

Joe had ideas. And Mary had access to scientific equipment. And they both were very, very angry at the world. And as the saying goes, if you cannot inspire love, you can always cause fear.

Young & Hungry is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and with a production crew of 30 and cast of 40, this year’s Festival is set to be our biggest yet!

Over the past 20 years Young & Hungry has delivered new and innovative NZ plays and our 2014 Festival will continue to push the boundaries with three new plays to devour.

Featuring strange creatures, a sci-fi dystopia, alternate realities, classic gothic fairytales, twisted allegories, epic battles, a hilarious journey to the underbelly of the Internet, and shark monkeys – this fest is not one to miss.

Our young cast and crew can’t wait to share their hard work and crazy antics this season, which runs from 18 July – 2 August at BATS Theatre.

Come along and try something different as we showcase the best young talent in new theatre.
