PRODUCTION INFORMATION

In a change from the comedies and musicals of the last year, up next for YAT is a dramatic and emotional piece of theatre. Find Me is based on the true story of a family struggling to cope with the mental disorder of their daughter and sister, Verity Taylor, whose behaviour they cannot understand or resolve. The play highlights the deficiencies of social services and hospitals at the time in dealing with Verities illness and who, for the "crime" of setting fire to a chair, ends up sentenced to an indefinite stay in Broadmoor.

The play involves a great deal of ensemble work and offers many challenging roles. Using a technique of multiple characterization, the part of Verity Taylor is played by five different actresses as the personality of the young girl is investigated in depth in an attempt to "find" her.
