It is 2014 and the final term in Britain’s most elite school for girls. Three young women hold envelopes that will determine the rest of their lives. One of these girls is not the sort of young lady their school is supposed to produce. There is porn on her laptop and pills in her book bag, and she is about to make a very big mistake…
Savagely funny and excruciatingly honest, Milly Thomas’ A First World Problem gives a rare insight into the cruelty of adolescence.
A First World Problem – a new play by Milly Thomas
Directed by Holly Race Roughan / Designed by Frankie Bradshaw
Fools and Kings is a new company established to showcase the work of the best young directors working in London.
