Suzie, Edwina and Lucy have moved to a new school in a new town. Three very different sisters who will do anything to fit in and yet are desperate to be noticed. But how far will they go to break out of the roles in which they've been cast and will they ever be able to truly change their lives when they're swimming against the tide?

Luke Barnes' Hampstead debut paints a captivating, lively and poignant portrait of the pressures of being a teenager and the fight for acceptance – irrespective of the cards you’ve been dealt. 

Luke's previous theatre credits include Bottleneck (Soho Theatre), Chapel Street (Bush Theatre) and Weekend Rockstars (Battersea Arts Centre/Hull Truck).

Anna Ledwich returns to direct following sell out hit Labyrinth on the Main Stage and Olivier Award nominated Four Minutes Twelve Seconds Downstairs. 

Starring Charlotte Beaumont (Broadchurch), Sophie Melville (Iphigenia in Splott, National Theatre/Sherman Theatre) and Helen Monks (Raised By Wolves).
