Quick Q&A: If This Is Normal 

Where and when: UK Tour (13th-14th April at Wardrobe Theatre in Bristol, 21st April at Old Fire Station Oxford, 22nd-23rd at Yvonne Arnaud Guildford, 26th-30th April at 53Two in Manchester and 3rd May at Liverpool’s Royal Court)

What it’s all about… Growing up in Kilburn, siblings Madani, Maryam and school mate Alex hit it off from the moment they meet. 10 years later, playful chats about ninja turtles, annoying aunties and secret swearing have been kicked out by teen opinions powered by podcasts, porn and politics. Still, best friends can talk about anything. So why are there suddenly so many unspoken thoughts between the three? 

A comedy-drama about coming of age in our modern world of unfettered internet access, information overload and weaponised language. 

You’ll like it if… You like theatre that makes you laugh, then makes you think!  

You should see it because… It’s had critically acclaimed runs at both Edinburgh Fringe 2019 and VAULT Festival 2020 and this UK Tour is long overdue! The crack team of three talented young actors bring the audience in these intimate venues effortlessly into their world of teenage nostalgia, complicated conversations and lines in the sand.  

Anything else we should know…: There’s lots of cool stuff going on to accompany the tour. The playscript is being published by Methuen, there’ll be a BSL translated performance in Manchester as well as Q&As and schools’ workshops to discuss the issues the play explores further.
