What is Held

5 - 8 Jul

What is Held is a one woman show about 18-year-old Megan, a working-class girl from a small town in Somerset, as she waits for the results of her pregnancy test. For Megan there are now only two options — two entirely different life paths. Told using equal parts comedy and drama, What is Held explores Megan’s potential futures and what awaits her in each one.
