Every You Every Me explores young people’s sense of place in society in relation to mental health, rebellion and opening your A-level results. Written by award-winning author Barney Norris, it is the start of a conversation about identity, well-being and coping.
Every You Every Me is a play about growing up and learning to live. In 2015, Barney went on a journey exploring the way we care for people’s mental health in England. This is what he heard – a welter of voices, uncertainties and pressures, a generation trying to fit into a system that didn’t belong to them.
Every You Every Me will be performed at Reading Studio, Reading College, Kings Road, Reading, RG1 4HJ, Tuesday 18th – Sunday 22nd April 2017.
Age restriction: 12+
