‘You’re always gonna turn into one of your parents aren’t you, it’s just about choosing the one who’s slightly less mental.’

Fifteen-year-old Billie has lived with her dad in their little flat for as long as she can remember, but all that’s about to change. She’s got big plans – get Dad a job, sort out her grades, and live in a house with five bathrooms.

But one reckless night threatens to undo all her hard work and derail her ambitions… When it’s always been just the two of you, how easy is it to get out, or to let anyone else in?

A moving portrayal of what happens when those you should depend on need you more than you need them, Yous Two premiered at Hampstead Downstairs, London, in 2018.

Yous Two is Georgia Christou’s debut play. It was shortlisted for the Verity Bargate Award.

 

‘A savvy, observant and sometimes very funny look at teenage thrills and impulsiveness… [the characters’] interactions have an affectionate awkwardness that’s quirkily authentic… Christou has a great ear for the peculiar cadences of adolescent banter and sulkiness, as well as a fine awareness of the different ways in which both teenagers and adults can be needy’
Evening Standard

‘A fantastic bit of writing. Christou deftly hits the peaks and troughs of a father-daughter relationship as it spins endlessly between laughter and argument… an impressive and very funny debut play’
The Stage

‘A measured and well-oiled debut… Christou teases ideas out slickly, letting them bubble through the characters while never letting the concept override the stories on show’
Whatsonstage.com

‘A sparky, highly promising play’
Guardian

‘Mixes laugh-out-loud comedy with rich pathos… marks Georgia Christou as a real talent in the making, who has a great sense of humour but also the ability to convey humanity with feeling’
British Theatre Guide
