After successful runs at the Camden Fringe and the Winter Theatre Festival, the show earned it's five star reviews and was commended for it's full frontal approach to controversial topics.
Now the show is back on tour with a new lease of life.
It's highly physical, relentlessly challenging and there'll be even more laughter.
Growing up is hard and when a new girl starts school and reveals her controversial sexuality her friends have a lot to laugh about.
But when the jokes turn sour and the playful banter becomes bullying the group realise they have a lot to be sorry for.
Based on true events and real life stories; Naked Frank Theatre combine written accounts and verbatim text to tell a cold story about homophobia in schools in an outlandish, controversial and hilarious manner.
Before It Starts is a brutal and unforgiving take on teenage life, sex, social media and friendships.
Written as an educational show, there is 'no compromise with audience comfort zones'.
Put simply, if you are squeamish about staring the hard truth of teenage homophobia in the eye and laughing lavishly in it's face, then this isn't the show for you.
Written and performed by a predominantly gay cast, this piece is brazen, witty and unapologetic.
Teenagers can be cruel and ruthless and Naked Frank Theatre have bravely gone where others have never dared to go before.
