BrainStorm:
The Inside Life of the Teenage Mind

By Ned Glasier, Emily Lim, and Company Three

Inside every adolescent brain, 86 billion neurons connect and collide to produce the most frustrating, chaotic, and exhilarating changes that happen to human bodies. BrainStorm is a theatrical investigation into how teenagers’ brains work, and why they’re designed by evolution to be the way they are. Based on the latest science and created in collaboration with neuroscientists, BrainStorm is a blueprint for a company of young artists to create and perform by drawing directly on their personal experiences, making its impact on teen and adult audiences profound and long-lasting. Parts of the script will be devised by local middle and high school students.

We are looking to collaborate with local middle and high school theatre departments. If you are interested in more information, contact Education Director Amanda Kibler at akibler@coterietheatre.org.
