“Brave, funny, tough and beautiful writing” (the Guardian on Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You).

How well do you get on with your teenage self? Last year Molly Naylor 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 and it occurred to her that her relationship with her teenage self might be slightly dysfunctional.

Find out more in If Destroyed Still True; an original new show about youth, friendship, growing up and dealing with your teenage self. Written and performed by Molly Naylor (BBC Radio 4's Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You) with live music by Iain Ross (Bearsuit, Mega Emotion), the show features autobiography and songs and will be a great night out that we highly recommend.
