WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
We're white, we're westerners, we're girls and we're rich, of course we're fucking miserable. The standards are just too fucking high for us to be anything else. Savagely funny and excruciatingly honest, Milly Thomas's new play is a bang up to date insight into the cruelty of female adolescence. Set in one of Britain's most privileged schools, three teenage girls are in possession of an envelope whose contents will determine the rest of their lives. But one of them is not the sort of young woman the school is supposed to produce. There is porn on her laptop and pills in her book bag, and she is prepared to do anything to get where she wants... As tender as it is volatile, A First World Problem drives homes the reality that no amount of money can turn back the clock.
