About the show

Set in 1990s working-class Manchester, this solo show follows brash teenager Kelly Roberts as she visits a psychologist.  More…

'Innit' explores the angst and scorched heart of the Kelly as she unwittingly discloses a heart-breaking, empowering story. She's bold, vulgar, and broken. But that’s really none of your binnis, innit?

Entertaining, Dated, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if You like one-person shows investigating the UK, working class, teenage girl experience.

Don't see it if You want a show with a point or a purpose. The message seemed to be "life is hard."

Clever, Great acting, Indulgent, Quirky, Delightful

See it if You would like to a teen's angst

Don't see it if You want an arc or a second act

Edgy, Accent difficult to adjust to & understand, Too bizarre

See it if if you want to be confused and wonder WHY someone would want to share this story.

Don't see it if you want to be entertained and feel good when you leave theater.....

55
Quirky, Confusing

See it if You enjoy a one woman show with the theme of speaking to a therapist about life troubles.

Don't see it if You don't enjoy sloppy individual performances with bad timing between confusing musical productions and speaking.

Quirky, Disappointing, Slow

See it if you like one-person shows, no matter the story

Don't see it if you've seen enough one-person shows to expect a tighter, less monotone story and some kind of arc/realization

Begins promisingly but quickly devolves into monotony & is directed at a glacial pace ...

See it if you are documenting plays of teenage angst.

Don't see it if it will bother you if the 50 minute running time seems like 90 very slow minutes. This was a difficult to sit through disappointment.

Edgy, Quirky, Slow, Raunchy, Thought-provoking

See it if You really like one-person monologues and have an interest in teenage angst

Don't see it if You prefer light entertainment over an interesting but uneven show heavy on pain and despair.

Intense, Great acting, Dark, One-woman-show, British

See it if You enjoy a show that is more of a "case study" than a traditional linear play.

Don't see it if You dislike teen angst. Are looking for production value or something fluffy.

Edgy, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy coming-of-age stories and want to see a one-woman show

Don't see it if you are expecting a grandeur or more pop culture references (come on, Manchester in the 90s, at least throw in some Britpop in there?)

"Filled with colorful descriptiveness, it’s short on plot and reaches a bleak conclusion. Running 50 minutes it holds the interest...Forde’s staging is simple and effective. She is artfully positioned throughout the presentation in various areas of the small stage...'Innit' is an entertaining cha...

"'Innit' fails to a considerable degree from the lack of directorial shaping…Kelly's monologue, delivered almost entirely in an underwhelmingly disconnected tone, is frequently accompanied by a disdainful, goggle-eyed, mouth agape expression (like 'duh'). There's no plotline at all, merely the on...

"While Forde’s adult face belies her credibility as a youth, and the show’s ending comes with unexpected suddenness, her performance is a tour-de-force of teenage angst...Well acted, poignant, and relevant. But, as is often the case with experimental Fringe work, each could benefit from more deve...
