Just Thirteen Goes Viral!


A comedy about not wanting to stick out but still wanting to be unique and seen.
For Class 6 - 8

As if life as a teenager wasn’t hard enough. Bras…shaving…body hair… now there’s TikTok, Snapchat, YouTube, WhatApp and Co to worry about as well… For Katy, Tyler and Nicole it’s not easy navigating your way through the Disneyland of social media. And in a second, or a click, you can easily ruin a (best) friendship. Hopefully not forever… A poignant show about how we sometimes don’t do the right thing and how easy it is for something to spin out beyond your control and GO VIRAL!

The show deals with the important topic of social media. How do we know what happens to our information after we send it? For somethings there is just no delete button. "Just 13 Goes Viral" is a heartfelt story about the trials and tribulations of growing up in an ever more complicated and digital world.

It doesn’t matter if you are on or in front of the stage, at the end of ‘Just Thirteen’ you can feel lots of youthful enthusiasm that theatre (even in English) can spark. The play ends with hooting, standing ovations and music from Taylor Swift.

‚(…) enthusiastic applause from the students at the premiere.’

Kulturvolk Blog 2018

‚One of the most enjoyable English lessons is definitely a visit to Scollin’s Platypus Theater. (…) The play can be serious at times, but never with a moralising undertone, rather it uses humour, brains, tempo and precise acting to make the message come across.’
