The Rose Theatre and Studio Theatre


Hold Tight

Directed & Designed by Charlotte Vincent

Composed by Jules Maxwell

Home is where our story begins. It’s not always a place – it’s a condition, a feeling, a sense of connection. It forms who we are and how we move through the world.  Hold Tight explores the impact of separation on family relationships and how abrupt change and adverse childhood experiences impact on young people, their behaviour and their sense of identity, especially children taken into care.

With two teenagers and four adults on stage and testimonies from care-experienced young people embedded in the work, VDT’s production explores home, family and belonging and considers how, when we long for intimacy and connection, sometimes we just have to Hold Tight.

Age recommendation: 14+

This production may contain scenes that some people might find upsetting.

Vincent ‘explores the visceral emotional labour involved in surviving – and creating – home.’ – The Psychologist, In Loco Parentis, 2020
