Brenda is 16 and pregnant, Amy is the first in her family to go to university. What could possibly go wrong? This brand-new verbatim play explores the struggles that young, working class women face. We are working class and attend university. We recognise the difficulties women like us face when trying to be a mother and study. We want to raise awareness of the struggles and pressures that these women face and the systems in place such as universal credit and whether they really are enough in this current political and economic climate.

'The show is descended from a lineage of political theatremakers from Andrea Dunbar to Cardboard Citizens, dramatising a social issue and revealing the structural forces at play'- The Stage

'A raw, provocative performance which highlights the sense of community within the working classes, and how this can serve to either strengthen you or isolate you.'- Broadway Baby
