FIRE & STEEL in association with NATIONAL THEATRE CONNECTIONS 2020 & MARPLE DRAMA
Tickets are now on sale for THE IT, by Vivienne Franzmann.
THE IT is a play about a teenage girl who has something growing inside her. Grace doesn’t know what it is, but she knows it’s not a baby. It expands in her body. It starts in her stomach, but quickly outgrows that, until eventually it takes over the entirety of her insides. No one must know about it. Grace 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. The It tries to escape from her body. She can’t let that happen. Grace cuts an isolated weird figure at school, trying to live her life ‘normally; but battling to keep The It inside of her. But she can’t contain it forever, sooner or later something’s got to give……….
A darkly comic state of the nation play exploring adolescent mental health and the rage within, written very specifically for today.
