“Have you ever tried to sustain a relationship with a twat? It’s hard work and you need to be completely not a twat yourself if you want any success in this. Which is really hard when you’ve just started being a teenager.”

One girl’s funny, frank account of losing her Mum to a cult.

(As if growing up wasn’t hard enough already…)

“I remember thinking if you were ‘the chosen’ one, why does that mean your dress sense has to be so shit?”

A celebration of teenage rebellion and resilience.

Anoushka Warden’s debut play will be directed by Royal Court Artistic Director Vicky Featherstone and Jude Christian. Associate Producer Amy Powell Yeates.
