Voices of Generation Zed (VOGZ) is a small scale touring show made by, for and with young people. It is performed by student actors from Cumbria and produced by a professional team.

It was commissioned during the first National Lockdown from award winning writer Kevin Dyer.

Voices of Generation Zed is a play made up of 10 short plays. They average at around 5-6 minutes each and the whole performance lasts around an hour.

The plays are not related to each other. The characters are different in each one. What links them is that they are all related to young people born roughly between the years 1997 and 2012, Generation Zed, that’s young people aged roughly between 10 and 25 years of age.


We asked the question, ‘what is it like to be young now in a world of exponential change’.

But the plays don’t deal with issues like global warming or anxiety or poverty. Instead they are all about relationships between people; friends, lovers, family, strangers.

They are plays about modern manners as played out by the wonderful Generation Zed, about how social situations and moral realities are being remodelled by the young people in this age group.

These short stories show a world in which there is about the need to be ‘woke’ and why ‘snowflake’ is a compliment not an insult.
