About the Event

“Err Dan Lovely cock 

But before you start 

And sorry to ask 

But could you put a sock on that mate? 

I know you've been tested 

But unless you've been tested for infertility 

I'm gunna have to ask you to make me a balloon animal 

...With your penis" 

16-year-old Yasmin sits and stares at her positive pregnancy result. She can't go back into the exam hall now. Her stomach is churning and it's not the lunch she had in the canteen. This sh*t just got real.  An Inspiring, comedic two-hander performance of Christopher York's 'Build a Rocket'.

Written by Christopher York.

Performed by Emily Swift & Lauren Johnson.
