Who are the Millennials*? Are they a self-centred or a lost generation, who saw their dreams dashed before they came of age? Are they consumed by disappointment or inspired by the hope that they might improve the world? Do they find everything easier or more difficult than previous generations? Are they eternal adolescents or conscious defenders of their rights? Will they ever manage to own their own homes? What will they do with all the academic knowledge they have amassed? How do they feel about today's era of high expectations and crushing realities? And how do they experience the gap between what they have and what they want?
A text resulting from research and interviews with young people in six different European cities will attempt to illuminate the thoughts and anxieties of perhaps the most complex and confused of all generations. The drama combines elements of fiction and documentary and reserves a surprise role for the ultimate Millennial, Britney Spears. A production for Daphne, Ermelina, Nikos, Maria, Giorgos, Petros, and all those who belong to this generation, but also for those who identify with its dreams and disappointments.
*Millennials are generally considered to be those born between 1981 and 1996.
The play was written within the framework of the New Stages Southeast programme, an initiative of the Goethe Institute of Thessaloniki.
