Opening in December 2016, the musical caused a stir among both audiences and critics, receiving virtually universal acclaim for it’s carefully managed portrayal of the difficult subject matter of mental health issues and suicide in teenagers, exploring the subject with relatable warmth, integrity and humour whilst never trivialising it.
