Tucson, AZ – This piece explores the complexity, joys, fears and experiences of the generation that has never been without the Internet, lived in a USA not at war and never been at a loss for an emoji. The original script was developed through improvisation and autobiographical writings. The power of telling personal stories will let the audience “in on” these “Wildcats”: the good, the bad, the crazy and the love during the years that form our adult selves.
Guest Director, Annette Hillman, says that she’s incredibly fortunate to be given this opportunity to explore, correct (or emphasize) the definition of who Gen Z is with this talented, brutally honest and ambitious cast.
“I gave them free reign to explore topics and they ran wild with scissors,” Hillman said. “It’s really a thrill to invent a piece and see things that you’ve never seen on stage before and develop pieces within a collaborative. I feel I was given secret access to who they really are. They hit me with the real tea!”
If you don’t know what that last line means, Hillman says, “Look it up.”
I was told by a GenZ-er to use the Urban Dictionary online. I did.
