    Elephants (are the Largest Land Mammals)

    By Niall Farnan

    Young people are often demonised, but no one should be generalised. Where some city teens might join gangs or different ways to belong, rural teenagers can often feel isolated if nothing is provided for them to do.

    Each person is an individual, with a reason for their actions.

    Described by Rhys Hayes of the leading 'Off West End' Finborough Theatre, as 'an energetic, bold monologue that addresses mental health issues in a compassionate and thoughtful way.' 'Elephants (are the Largest Land Mammals)' follows Squirrel, a young person in their late teens. Seen through Squirrel's philosophy of life it explores loss, and the character's inability to come to terms with it as they struggle with PTSD; and a system that has consistently abandoned them throughout their young life.

    Squirrel could be any young person in any rural area, anywhere in the UK. "You think you see me, don't you; but you don't - not really." - Squirrel.

    "A funny and thought provoking exploration of loss, through one young person's philosophy of life ." Suitable Age 14+
