Build a Rocket is an explosive and powerful one-woman show following the story of Yasmin, a sixteen-year-old girl from Scarborough, whose life isn't sandcastles, arcades, and donkey rides... she finds herself pregnant and alone in the world.
A unique and bold, in-the-round production propels this hard-hitting yet inspiring story written by Scarborough-born Christopher York. Yasmin takes us on a whirlwind journey through nights out, morning sickness, and school uniforms right up to her son's coming of age. Build a Rocket is a funny and uplifting story exploring triumph over adversity, challenging perceptions of young motherhood along the way.
