A surreal, dreamlike, and hilarious play exploring the pressures and transformations that happen to teenagers as they grow up.
Otto’s parents have big plans for him. His mum thinks he’s ‘Cambridge material’. His dad wants him to play for Arsenal. It’s a lot of pressure, but Otto has it under control.
Until one morning, when Otto wakes up feeling peculiar . . . discovering he’s been transformed into a skunk.
Inspired by Kafka’s novella The Metamorphosis, Zawe Ashton’s ‘Skunk’ was first performed at Soho Theatre, produced by the National Youth Theatre. This is the first performance of our Skills group who have been exploring physical theatre this year and can’t wait to perform this brilliant show. Smells like teen spirit.
