Synopsis

Dear Nobody Play by Rachel O'Neill, Berlie Doherty

Adapted from Berlie Doherty's award-winning book, the play examines how two teenagers cope with an unplanned pregnancy. Tackling the issues of relationships, love and pregnancy, Dear Nobody is the story of two teenagers, Helen and Chris, in their final year of school. Their plans for music college and university are suddenly thrown into disarray when Helen falls pregnant. Chris tries to keep them together, but Helen withdraws into herself, writing letters to her unborn baby. Sensitively adapted from the best-selling novel, this play is perfect for school performance.
