‘People don’t like it when things come easier to you. They don’t like being around someone who makes them feel stupid. They don’t like… me’


On a reality television show, six remarkable – and remarkably young – geniuses are competing for the coveted Golden Brain trophy and the title ‘Britain’s Brainiest Child’

As the contestants battle it out round after round, the pressure mounts, the spotlight gets harsher, and each is faced with questions they were never expecting

Who will win and who will lose – and what exactly does winning mean anyway?

Georgia Christou’s Bright. Young. Things. is a funny, fast-paced play about identity, truth and the challenge of finding out who you really are

It is part of Platform, an initiative from Tonic Theatre in partnership with Nick Hern Books which promotes greater gender equality in theatre by publishing big-cast plays with predominantly, or all, female casts, written specifically for performance by young actors
