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?

Absorbing, Great acting, Poignant, Brave, Edgy

See it if game for an intense, layered, bravura solo act conjuring hard times as a scrappy, lonely Manchester teen from a broken home in the '90s.

Intense, Raunchy, Slow, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if a one woman show about a troubled teenage Irish girl living with her mom in Manchester in the 90's is something of interest to you

Don't see it if you are looking for something light and fluffy. Show ran 55 minutes and needed all your attention to get the crux of the matter

Don't see it if You dislike one-person monologues and have no interest in working-class life in the U.K.

Intimate, Introspective, Slow, Reflective, Awkward

See it if you want to delve back into the 80s through the life of a reflective teenage character; you enjoy one-actor, memoir-ish plays

Don't see it if you are triggered by emotional and sexual abuses; you are off-put by actors who are clearly not teenagers playing teenagers

"'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').
