Sara hasn’t been to school for over a month. She is tormented by anxiety, which grows so strong that she vomits if she is trying to get anywhere near the building. But there is a reason for it. A reason which she will refuse to the greatest lengths to reveal. 

This is a play about well-meaning but confused parents, about the fumbling attempts of government authorities and legal systems to keep up with the constant changes in the everyday living conditions of teenagers – but above all else, this is a play about Sara, age 14. 

From 13 years

Motivation of the jury:

With exceptional dramatization, brilliant acting and drastic humour, The performance describes a dysfunctional mother-daughter relationship. Intimate interplay, with a balance between intense expression and close concentration, helps us to really get to know the characters with all their anguish and sorrow. The performance portrays people and their relationships superbly and, somewhat radically, avoids being judgmental.
