‘Instructions For A Teenage Armageddon’ is a 14-performance run of a one-girl show and a call to arms for young women everywhere, and questions why society isn’t watching out for our girls as they navigate a trail through adolescence. Written and performed by Rosie Day, the show will run from 17th to the 29th February this year at the Old Red Lion Theatre. Tickets are here: www.oldredliontheatre.co.uk/instructions-for-a-teenage-armageddon
We are producing Rosie’s tie-in podcast, or POWcast, called ‘TeenArmy’ – a series about strong young women. She recorded her first interview with 19-year-old Maya Ghazal in early January. Maya is a Princess Diana Legacy Award Winner, an ambassador for the Children’s Society and ambassador for the UN Refugee Agency.
Maya is both a role model and a compelling spokesperson for young refugees and migrants across the UK. From her incredible journey from Damascus in Syria to the UK, Maya has faced many hurdles, including not speaking any English. Through her determination and passion for making a difference she has not only learned English but is also excelling in her education – recently gaining a place to study Aviation Engineering with Pilot Studies at Brunel University.
The POWcast will be a regular series and once the platform is secured, we will stream all interviews.
