Tender, uncompromising, haunting and lyrical, these four plays together comprise a contemporary chronicle of the lives of East London’s young women.

In The Urban Girl’s Guide to Camping, four young friends leave the city behind and head into the wilderness, but a burning secret threatens to tear their lives apart. A bittersweet comedy about life, love and friendship once school is long gone.

The other plays in this volume are:

Mehndi Night
Stolen Secrets
The Unravelling

These plays are the result of a unique four-year partnership between award-winning playwright Fin Kennedy and Mulberry School in East London. Originally performed by the school at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and at Southwark Playhouse, London, they are written in an ensemble storytelling style that will suit younger performance groups around the country, especially those looking for predominantly female roles.
