Second Person Narrative

By Jemma Kennedy

Paperback £9.99£7.99

Ebook £9.99£7.99

You're born a girl. You grow up. You grow old. You die. But who is in control of your life story? Can you actually choose your destiny? And how do you forge your own identity along the way?

Second Person Narrative by Jemma Kennedy is part of Platform, an initiative from Tonic Theatre in partnership with Nick Hern Books aimed at addressing gender imbalance and inequality in theatre. Platform comprises big-cast plays with predominantly or all-female casts, written specifically for performance by school, college and youth-theatre groups.

'Drama is an important tool for building confidence and empowering young people. Platform will give girls opportunity to access these benefits as much as their male counterparts.' Moira Buffini

Buying from an educational institution or youth group? You can get the scripts for Platform plays at a special discount price – head to the Platform website for more information.

It’s bound to be different this time though some of it might seem familiar
The big questions, we mean
The beginnings, middles, endings, et cetera
Still, not to worry, it’s all a work-in-progress’
