Presented by Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, the New Wolsey Theatre and HighTide.

T has moved from the city, making a fresh start. He's not ashamed of his mum, but he's not sure the other kids will understand. It's OK not to tell everyone the truth about everything, isn't it?

This is a brand-new, joyful, music-filled play by award-winning writer Yolanda Mercy, commissioned by Suffolk County Council to support young people in understanding and prioritising their mental wellbeing after the last two years.

For ages 10+.
