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 is a powerful funny and uncompromising story about the hidden desires and anxieties of young people which is presented in a striking, immersive spoken word style with the audience part of the action.

This production contains themes that some people may find distressing.
