    Expectations around theatre for young people are
    too prescribed today. Adults have long-held views on what works are appropriate
    and yet among all this concern for young people’s creativity, it is not
    acknowledged as art. For the young people who work in the sector, the word
    ‘value’ is clouded by precedent: we struggle to be heard. In a startling expose
    of a system in serious need of reconstruction, Giles calls for a review of the
    accepted attitudes, and the embrace of a different paradigm that places young
    people at the centre of change. We must un-learn the past hierarchies, empower
    the engagement of children as a legitimate collaboration, and recognise the power
    of instinctive play and imagination as intelligent modes of exploration.
