A Fuel, Imaginate and Northern Stage production in association with National Theatre of Scotland
Written by Hannah Lavery
Directed by Natalie Ibu
Running is Alice’s happy place. She’s the best runner at her school and can outrun everyone, even the boys…but she’s struggling to prove her worth.
Jade is being tested. Racist bullying and history classes that tell a one-sided story sets her on a mission to find out about her heritage and those who came before her.
Meanwhile, litter is piling up in the local forest. All over the world an environmental crisis is looming, the threat of disorder and division is growing. Chloe is determined to make a change, starting with the town.
Three girls prepare to challenge the status quo and tackle injustices in this new play exploring the power of friendship, activism and believing in your own voice.
