Germ Free Adolescent

By Natalie Mitchell

Paperback £9.99

Ashley is 16. She's lived in Medway for 15 years and 6 months. She has 2,354 leaflets on sexual health. She knows exactly how many she has, because she's counted them 1,582 times… At 7.48pm tonight, she will have been going out with Ollie for exactly 3 months, which he thinks means it's time to take their relationship to the next level; especially given her position as their school's resident expert on sexual health. But what if counting leaflets can't protect Ashley from getting hurt when she decides to take her biggest risk yet?

Natalie Mitchell's play Germ Free Adolescent is an OCD love story that asks: what exactly is 'normal' anyway…?

Premiered at The Bunker Theatre, London, in October 2019.
