Like Me If
You Can

Original play for young audiences, 14 years and up, inspired by texts written by teenagers from the V4 countries on the theme of Misunderstanding.

Everyone has been unhappily in love. Everyone who is growing up, would like to look different. Everyone has felt, at least once, that nobody understands them.

The theatre group Performalita goes back to their own adolescence and finds that the problems and situations haven’t changed much over time, but they can now be viewed from a different perspective. Can this be the reason why people from different generations misunderstand each other so frequently?

Is it possible for an intergenerational dialogue to not judge, moralize or trivialize – but form a platform for mutual understanding?

So Like Me If You Can!
