In Salford alone, 34,000 children are caring for someone.

Adapted from real-life testimonies, this bold and pertinent piece of documentary theatre examines our failing care system, the impact of austerity and what happens when a child becomes the parent. A gripping verbatim theatre production based on a year of interviews that offers a rare insight into a year in the lives of young carers.
