Kathleen sits anxiously waiting for the arrival of the man whom she had given up for adoption thirty years before and who has now traced her. Years spent insulating herself from the pain of separation and loss fall away as she begins to recall the events,the relationships and conversations ‐ both imagined and real ‐ with a clarity that brings each of her story’s characters to life.

This play encapsulates all the raw and complicated emotions of the players in the adoption narrative, bringing a powerful insight into how complicated and painful it is for all those involved. The play was shortlisted for the King’s Cross Award, which is sponsored by the Courtyard Theatre, London.

A play by Mark Wilson, directed by Sarah Meadows, performed by Kathryn O’Reilly and Stephen Myott‐Meadows and with original composition by Benedict Taylor.

‘YOU’ garnered a 5 star review from The Argus as well as an Argus Angel Award! Read the review here.
