What’s a girl to do when, at just fifteen, she’s forced to give up her newborn for adoption? Follow our tragicomic Shurl in her search for connection in what feels like an ever-shifting landscape. The play draws upon Sue Bevan’s own experience of losing her child to adoption when, at the age of 15, she gave birth to her in a poor, tight-knit neighbourhood.

Edinburgh reviews:

“Gripping, immersive…powerfully emotional…I’m not quite sure what I expected but I didn’t expect to be moved so completely” …Three Weeks

“Perfect…beautifully executed” … Broadway Baby

“Perfectly pitched…sad and sweet and beautiful all at once Edfringe Review

“Compelling … The Stage

Reviewed in Cape Times, South Africa:

“That hour gave me what good, honest, crafted, generous art can give: we were nine strangers in a room, intimately sharing something. We weren’t alone.”

The Midtown International Theatre Festival returns for another summer of quality stage works. New York’s oldest continuing theater festival will present 100 plays in 23 days.

One of the leading reasons to visit New York in the summer is the theater – from Shakespeare in the Park to the best of Broadway. New York is also known for its amazing theater festivals. This year, the venerable Midtown International Theatre Festival takes its place as the oldest continuing summer arts festival in New York. To usher in this honor, producer John Chatterton presents nearly 100 new and fascinating live stage works – plays, musicals, variety acts, short plays, solo projects, and so much more.
