Description

Crowded

An Apples and Snakes and Half Moon production.

How do you sort your head out when it gets too crowded in there?

It’s the beginning of summer and the community festival is in full swing in the local park. Everyone is there. Crowds queue but among the smiles and excitement lies something that could spoil this party...

Developed in direct response to the growing number of teenagers in the UK struggling with their mental health, Crowded tells the story of ordinary young people whose anxiety, depression and desire leads to harmful and destructive behaviours. Giving voice to emotions that are often unspoken due to social stigma, Crowded is a powerful, funny and uncompromising story presented in a striking spoken word show by three exciting young poet-performers: Desree, Laura Rae and Slam the Poet.

This production contains themes that some people may find distressing.

Crowded is part of SPINE Festival, a libraries based festival for young people. Now in its fifth year, SPINE festival celebrates arts, literature and London's rich cultural diversity.
