Davina Moss, Literary Manager at Hampstead Theatre, said: 

"Working with a group of young people in the height of the pandemic was a glorious reminder of the persistence of the creative spirit. These teenagers are brilliantly smart and hard-working, so spending a few months with them to create this project was a genuine privilege.

For Hampstead Theatre, this project has given us a chance to work with our local Camden community, something we hope to continue much more into the future. We are so proud of the young people and the product they have created, and grateful to all of them for their dedication and enthusiasm."
