Synopsis


17 is lyrical new play about two girls in a small midlands town examining what it's like to be teenagers in the internet age.


Yasmin Sidhu and Casey Smith are best friends.


But at 17 the world as they know it is soon about to change.


Yasmin will be off to University, a good one - to do maths.


And Casey, well Casey needs to figure out what on earth it is she wants to be.


She's heard you can make a living doing makeup tutorials on insta, and nobody can contour like Casey.


When a video of Yasmin goes viral, everyone is shocked that it is her that is breaking the internet and not Casey.


'17' is a look at what it's like being a teenager now: trying things, learning stuff, failing, succeeding, heartbreak, expectations and shame.


Prepare to be thrown back into those unsteady days of 17.


Playwright Frankie Meredith is a graduate of the Lyric Hammersmith Young Writers' Programme and is also part of Soho Writers' Lab.


Her last play, Turkey, debuted at the Hope Theatre at the end of last year.
