Edinburgh International Children's Festival 2023


Running is Alice’s happy place – you might even say it’s in her DNA.

She’s the best runner at her school but is struggling to prove her worth.  Jade is slowly coming to realise that prejudices can be found everywhere, even in the most surprising places. Realising that her education is ill-equipped to encompass her own history and heritage, and taunted by bullies at school, she knows it’s time to tell her own story.

Meanwhile, litter is piling up in the local forest, and all over the world an environmental crisis is looming.  Chloe is determined to make a change, starting with the town.

Three girls prepare to stand up for what they believe in despite the injustices stacked against them in this new play exploring what it takes to make a difference, the power of friendship, and the importance of believing in your own voice.
