Half of Me

25 Feb 2017
  • Approx 50 mins
  • £8 & discounts

Areia grows up with a thousand unanswered questions. Where did I get my eyes? My wavy hair? My scholarly air? When she finally discovers the truths to her burning questions, she embarks on a life-changing trip to find out who she really is.

A poetically-written piece about the often unheard experiences of young people born by Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs).

“… do you know how hard it is

To look in the mirror each day

See a stranger in your face?”

Half of Me is presented by Mercury Theatre Young Company in partnership with Tamasha.
