A teenage girl has something growing inside her. She doesn’t know what it is, but she knows it’s not a baby. It expands. It has claws. Eventually it takes over the entirety of her body.

No one must know about it. She has to keep its presence, its possession of her, concealed. She pulls away from her friends. She refuses to speak, in case “The IT” is heard. But she can’t contain it forever. Sooner or later, something’s got to give…

Vivienne Franzmann’s play is a darkly comic state-of-the-nation work exploring adolescent mental health and the rage within.

"It is really small.

Whatever it is.

But it's here.

It's definitely here."

Thursday 21st - Saturday 23rd March 7.30pm
