Synopsis


Ashley is 16.


She's lived in Medway for 15 years and 6 months.


She has 2,354 leaflets on sexual health.


She knows exactly how many she has, because she's counted them 1,582 times …


At 7.48pm tonight, she will have been going out with Ollie for exactly 3 months, which he thinks means it's time to take their relationship to the next level; especially given her position as their school's resident expert on sexual health.


But what if counting leaflets can't protect Ashley from getting hurt when she decides to take her biggest risk yet?


Germ Free Adolescent is an OCD love story that asks: what exactly is 'normal' anyway …?


1 in 10 young people experience a mental health problem, but how do you go about discussing this with your first boyfriend or girlfriend?


Fierce and funny, serious and irreverent - this play will resonate with anyone who's ever worried they're not "normal."


Background, advisory warnings


Age suitability: Not available


Written by Natalie Mitchell, the play draws on her own mental health experiences, and the painful yet often funny stories collected during an extensive research and development process with young people, youth workers, and Mental Health Services across Medway in Kent during 2014 and 2015.
