Part of WOW – Women of the World

Watch this one-woman show about a stolen childhood and growing up with a secret.

Evie is 13-years-old and lives in Neasden with her mum. She wants to tell us about something: her crush on Lewis, trying to be a woman, friends, virginity, garage remixes, Hello Kitty underwear… an ‘uncle’ lurking in the corner of her story.

She wants to make us laugh, and she’s pretty good at it. She wants to tell us something, but she doesn’t dare let it out.

Yvette is written by Urielle Klein-Mekongo and is based on a true story, with original music.

Winner, Young Harts Writing Fest Audience Favourite 2017, Kings Head Theatre Stella Wilkie Award 2017, The East15 Pulse Award 2017.

Yvette was first developed at East 15’s Debut Festival, a pioneering and unique event dedicated to the staging of new plays written and directed as well as performed by graduating students on the acclaimed ‘CT course’ (BA in Acting and Contemporary Theatre) developed and led by Uri Roodner.

Presented by China Plate
