Ashley and Daphne are Secondary 5 Normal Academic students struggling to cope with the pressure to perform. When idealistic teacher Sarah Hew joins the school, Ashley and Daphne find the courage to face their hidden fears, hurts and dreams. The education system tries to build people up – but what happens when it breaks people down? Sharply written and profoundly affecting, Normal explores the world of students who fail to fit the mould.
Normal premiered in 2015 to a sold-out run with audience members and critics alike eagerly awaiting its return. Opening Checkpoint Theatre’s 15th anniversary season, the encore staging of Normal will bring this contemporary classic to a wider audience.
