MWGSI


A brutally honest and humorous account of the notoriety and loneliness of a teenager living with cancer.

New drama from Manon Steffan Ros.

“It was going to be epic. I was just a normal 18 year old.

“A-level stress was but a brief blur. Ready for a wine filled summer before I started nursing degree. Then bang! No duty free, a piss-up and a sun tan for me.

“The toughest and shittiest year of my life.”

Instead of a hell-raising, wine-filled summer with the girls, 18 year old Mwgsi enters a world of chemo, illness and the loneliness of a strange, tragic figure.

The tension between Mwgsi, her friends, her family and herself offers a piece of theatre full of dark humour that will force us to confront our own uncertain futures.
