Before It Starts

Before It Starts is a brutal and unforgiving take on teenage life, sex, social media and friendships. "Growing up is hard and when a new girl starts school and reveals her controversial sexuality her friends have a lot to laugh about. But when the jokes turn sour and the playful banter becomes bullying the group realise they have a lot to be sorry for."

Put simply, if you are squeamish about staring the hard truth of teenage homophobia in the eye and laughing lavishly in its face, then this isn’t the show for you. It’s playful, honest and daring. Oh, and remember…it’s all based on true events. Tennagers can be shockingly funny!

Naked Frank are a physical theatre company who create theatre that makes a positive difference.

“We don’t believe that theatre can change the world, but it can change an opinion. Change enough opinions and you might just change the world.”

’Everything is in place: enthusiasm, integrity, uncompromising message: the result is a highly effective piece of theatre.’ 
Peter Yates, London Theatre 1
