Why is the age recommendation 7+?
It’s a full-length production (over 2 hours) which can be difficult for young people with a shorter attention span. The play includes smoke and haze, as well as more general mature themes that might not be totally appropriate for our youngest audiences. However, the age recommendation is just that – a recommendation. You are best placed to make a decision about what is appropriate for your students.
