Still • Falling and The Code explore issues today’s teens face in their daily lives: mental-health struggles, the complexities of gender dynamics, and the challenges that arise when the lines between friendship and romance blur.
A realistic, honest, and bitingly funny look at the difference between so-called teen angst and mental illness, Still • Falling follows Nina (Nick in the male adaptation) as she struggles with anxiety, depression, and self-harm and tries to rise above them with as much strength – and as few scars – as possible.
In The Code, grade-eleven student Moira becomes a hero when she stages a school-wide protest after the principal implements a dress code for school dances. But when the dance is cancelled in response, Moira’s followers viciously turn on her. With humour and nuance, The Code challenges audiences to hold themselves accountable for their words and actions and to consider what’s at stake when lines are crossed.
