We Are The Best!
A Live Theatre Production of Lukas Moodysson's We Are The Best!



Based on the graphic novel Never Goodnight by Coco Moodysson

Adapted for the stage by Rebecca Glendenning

Directed by Jack McNamara



Live Theatre launches its new season with an explosive world premiere stage adaptation of a film described by the New York Times as “a joyous heart-swelling story of youthful rebellion.”



Stockholm 1982. Three friends decide to change the world. Or at least change their world.



And their hair.



Bobo doesn’t quite fit in. Luckily, neither does her friend Klara. With classmates, parents and teachers that oppress them on all sides, the two misfits decide to start a band. Joined by the shiest pupil in school, Hedwig, they begin to play. They don’t know how to play but that doesn’t matter. They are doing it. And they are the best!



Lukas Moodysson’s cult film, based on his wife Coco’s acclaimed comic book, was an international sensation when it first came out and has now been rewritten by major upcoming talent Rebecca Glendenning (Bonnie and the Bonnettes) as a glorious punk story for here and now. 



Charged with the anarchic spirit of the North East, this is a high energy ensemble comedy about finding your voice, the power of friendship and the joy of sticking two fingers up at a society that tries to define you.



Note: This production is made for adults but also offers a rare opportunity to cross generations. So, if you have a young person who fancies a high energy, great night at the theatre remember Teenagers go FREE on selected dates!
