All I've Known by Rachel Yates at ChickenShed Studio
All I've Known by Rachel Yates, at the ChickenShed Theatre Studio, in Southgate, north London, from 1 to 18 May 2013.
All I’ve Known, inspired by writer and director Rachel Yates’ own childhood growing up in a family that fostered children over many years, is the story of a now grown up son, with children of his own, who is ready to reconnect with the family that loved him deeply. Rachel, having spoken to other people with their own stories to share, weaves together excerpts from these interviews to create the backdrop for this 'moving and poignant ' new play.
