This off-the-wall, multi-generational epic is a madcap reimagining of the eternal conflict between generations, as children born in the booming 80s and 90s realise that adulthood has heralded an era of ongoing personal and global crises.
Lost (“Persi”) was a finalist for the 2016 Network Nuova Drammaturgia Prize
Lost is written by Greta Cappelletti, translated by Valentina Marconi and directed by Kate O’Connor.
