and now we wait. is a gritty tale of regular teenagers who find themselves in an irregular situation; it is the story of how a shared experience affects individuals in different ways. The play follows five teenagers who barricade themselves in an old school theatre to protect themselves from an active school shooter.
“and now we wait. is an intelligent, carefully considered and wonderfully tense piece of theatre. When it finished I suddenly relaxed all my muscles, realising I’d been tensing my torso and fists during the ordeal.” - Tom Bensley (Theatre People, 2015)
“and now we wait. plays out like a grim re-imagining of The Breakfast Club for, in this case, there is a shooter loose in the school and the five teenagers find shelter in an unused theatre. While they nervously remain hidden, not knowing where the shooter is and waiting for the nightmare to end, the group gradually faces some truths about themselves and what is ultimately important to each of them.” – Myron My (published on Theatre Press, 2015)
