Based on a true story, Yvette is an award-winning, one-woman show with original music about a stolen childhood and growing up with a secret.

Meet Evie. She’s thirteen and lives in Neasden with her Mum. She wants to tell us something. She wants to make us laugh; she’s pretty good at it. She wants us to tell us about crushes, friends, virginity, garage remixes, hello kitty underwear...

She wants to tell us something. Lurking in the corner of her stories is an ‘Uncle’... she wants to tell us, but she daren’t let it out.

    Tue 30 Oct - Sat 3 Nov

    Winning no less than seven Oscars, the film of Shakespeare in Love, starring Judi Dench, Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow, became an instant classic.
