Multi-award winning playwright Alana Valentine brings us two plays that deal head-on with teenage issues fraught with difficulty: bullying, belonging, isolation, identity.

Set against the backdrop of one of the most intriguing events in Newcastle’s recent history - the grounding of the Pasha Bulka - this is a coming-of-age tale centred around Farrah, a young Novocastrian with a fascination for Newcastle’s industrial port. Through her obsession we explore universal themes of isolation, belonging and identity and that time in your life when the obsessions of childhood get grounded in reality.
