Crowdeda Half Moon co-production with Apples and Snakes, won the Best Production for Young People Aged 13+ at the OFFIES, the Off West End Theatre Awards.

The awards were presented in a ceremony at the Battersea Arts Centre.

Developed in direct response to the growing number of teenagers in the UK struggling with their mental health, Crowded told the story of ordinary young people whose anxiety, depression and desire lead to harmful and destructive behaviours. It was written and performed by three emerging poet performers: Desree, Laura Rae and Slam the Poet, with dramaturgy and additional text by Rosemary Harris.

It’s the beginning of summer and the community festival is in full swing in the local park. Everyone is there. Crowds queue but among the smiles and excitement lies something that could spoil this party.
