IT'S MY PARTY
(& I'LL CRY IF I WANT TO)

AN ORIGINAL PRODUCTION FOR ABERDEEN PERFORMING ARTS
Do you ever wish you could back, back to being 12?
When you didn’t worry about your future, when you couldn’t wait to turn 13, to start the ‘big school’, to have freedom.
When ‘firsts’ became the game of choice; first kisses, first ‘relationship’, first shave, first ..?
When your primary 7 class was your world, and ‘you would be friends forever, no matter what.’
Do you ever think ignorance is bliss?
‘It’s My Party and I’ll Cry if I Want To’ is a coming of age story about growing up and realising that everything - somehow without you noticing - has changed forever.
