Mapping a teenager's quest for answers in the aftermath of a suicide

Camden Youth Theatre and director Lakeisha Lynch-Stevens present the world premiere adaptation of Danielle Jawando’s acclaimed novel, devised by local teenagers aged 13-19 years old.

And the Stars Were Burning Brightly is a powerful story about loss, understanding and the importance of speaking up when all you want to do is shut down.

Jawando's acclaimed novel tells the story of fifteen year-old Nathan and the impact of his brother's suicide. Examining issues around teenage mental health, this new adaptation explores the book's resonant story and contemporary themes, refracted through the experiences and imaginations of local Camden teenagers.
