So you probably all know that my debut play was called Runaway. I'm going to talk about why I wrote the play and how this relates to Great Expectations Theatre's vision for exposing issues that young people experience that are simply swept under the rug by the wider society.

I am very proud to present to you Great Expectations Theatre's website GreatExpectationsTheatre.co.uk where you'll find everything to do with our projects as we tackle the question: what's it really like to be a young adult in the 21st century?
From the media's perception it's all amazing & beautiful and perfect. Half of the time it isn't unfortunately. There's lots of challenges and pressures that are facing young people that society is ignoring. Great Expectations Theatre aims to explore these issues and present them to the public via various forms of media.
