Italian playwright Tobia Rossi’s dark coming-of-age story Hide and Seek will have its UK debut at VAULT Festival in February. This darkly entertaining play delves into bullying and homophobia, following Gio and Mirko on an unflinching and unexpected journey to self-acceptance, with dramatic consequences.
From Zava Productions, this moving play looks at the dangerous power of social media and how vulnerable young minds can be to loud, discriminatory voices around them. Set in a small town in Italy, Gio runs away and hides in a cave, desperate to escape his reality, where he doesn’t feel accepted by family, teachers or peers. When his popular classmate Mirko accidentally finds him, Gio enlists him as an accomplice and the rival teenagers embark on a journey of discovery with dark consequences.
In a society where we are encouraged to be ourselves, but ‘ourselves’ are often not accepted when it comes to sexual orientation and gender identity, Hide and Seek explores the devastating impact of homophobia on young people. This brutal, funny and compelling play offers a fresh perspective, placing the point of view with the teenage protagonists, closely examining the dark and deadly consequences of being raised in a close-minded community.
