A storytelling show for one performer (non-gender specific) you, me and the way the world ends is coming of age story about fear, best friends and growing up in a world of heightened terror alerts, cross continental pandemics, and climate change.
you, me and the way the world ends was originally conceived during a writing residency at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in August 2014, was workshopped at the Bike Shed Theatre in October 2014 and was subsequently given a work-in-progress performance by the West Yorkshire Playhouse as part of Furnace Festival 2015. The script is currently in its final phase of development.
