Play 2017 / The Best Of The Year


“The one thing that concerns a teenager more than anything else is boredom.  Not sex, nor rites of passage, nor coming of age. Not money, nor love, nor school, nor bad parents, nor rebellion against authority. Not even freedom. The one thing that defines teenage life more than any one thing is…boredom. The fear of it. The battle against it. The drive to do anything, no matter how stupid or dangerous, to keep the hideous monster at bay.”
