About

RECOMMENDED FOR YEARS 10-12

Back after a sell out debut season.

Edna’s fourteen and is head over heels in love with Harry – he’s beautiful, talented, perfect. But he’s also the face of ‘True Connection’, the world’s biggest boy band. And getting his attention will stretch the resources of anyone – even someone as clever and resourceful as Edna.

Yve Blake’s uproarious musical makes its much-anticipated return.
