When This Is Over

25 & 26 February


Does anyone really know where their story starts? Do you? Maybe it only really starts when you tell it. Maybe it’s starting right now.

Camden Youth Theatre return with their first live show in two years.

Created in the wake of the COP26 Climate Change Summit, a group of local young people come together to tell their own stories: the voice of a generation whose futures depend on world leaders sticking to their promises and safeguarding our planet.

When This Is Over is a play about those moments that change your life forever – staged at a pivotal time in history. Directed by Camden Youth Theatre leader Lakeisha Lynch-Stevens, devised by the young company from a blueprint by nationally-acclaimed youth-led theatre-makers Company Three.

A Camden Youth Theatre production, in association with Company Three and Nick Hern Books. Camden Youth Theatre is supported by Arts Council England, John Lyon's Charity, The Postcode Lottery, and the Jack Petchey Foundation.
