If Destroyed Still True by Molly Naylor & Iain Ross
Last year Molly saw an old school friend in a sauna. Rather than engage in small talk, she found a way to hide from her in what's essentially a small, hot shed.
It was weird.
It occurred to her that her relationship with her teenage self might be slightly dysfunctional.
Running at Battersea Arts Centre as an Edinburgh Fringe Preview, If Destroyed Still True is a new storytelling show from Molly Naylor (BBC Radio 4's Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You) and musician Iain Ross (Bearsuit, Mega Emotion).
Part autobiography, part fictional story about 15-year-old Jane's battle to stop her house falling into the ocean, If Destroyed Still True is a show about youth, friendship, growing up and our relationship with our teenage selves. Contains loud guitars, the sea and cringing.
