A sharp, dark comedy that explores the inescapable difference between feeling 19 and being 19.

Lou is getting on with her life, carefree and without ties. But this abruptly comes to a halt when her 19 year old god-daughter Minnie moves in to take up a place at university. Minnie’s arrival shines a harsh light into the corners of Lou’s life – revealing it to be not as it seems. Her relationships are complicated, her neighbours are closing in on her, and the clock is ticking. What does it mean to be a grown up?

Godchild premiered at the Hampstead Theatre in October 2013, directed by Michael Attenborough.
