Book I AND YOU Tickets

Housebound because of illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months. Confined to her room, she has only Instagram and Facebook for company. That is until classmate Anthony bursts in – uninvited and armed with waffle fries, a scruffy copy of Walt Whitman’s poetry and a school project due in the next day… Caroline is unimpressed all round.

But an unlikely friendship develops and a seemingly mundane piece of homework starts to reveal the pair’s hopes and dreams - as well as a deep and mysterious bond that connects them even further.

Lauren Gunderson was, after Shakespeare, the most produced playwright in America last year. Author of over 20 plays, Lauren has received the coveted Lanford Wilson Award at the Dramatists Guild Awards and two Steinberg/ATCA New Play Awards. Her signature play I and You is about friendship, adolescent innocence and living life to the full, and was a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.

Hampstead’s Artistic Director, Edward Hall, has directed many of Hampstead’s greatest successes including the Olivier Award winning Sunny Afternoon, Chariots of Fire, Wonderland and Filthy Business.

Maisie Williams makes her stage debut. Her television credits include Game of Thrones (8 series) and films include Mary Shelley and Early Man.

VIEW SEATING PLAN


We have a modern auditorium which has been designed to be as flexible as possible in both staging and seating configurations.

The seating capacity can range up to 325, in a variety of formats. There are two main seating areas: Ground Floor (stalls) and Upstairs (circle). On the Ground Floor there is also a mezzanine level, the back row of which are stool seats: higher seats complete with footrests.

Movable seating blocks also allow for the auditorium to be changed from a more traditional end-on configuration with a raised stage, to thrust or traverse layouts where the audience is level with the performance area.

The forestage can be raised, or lowered to allow for an orchestra pit. The main section of stage can also be raised or lowered to change the relationship between performers and audience or to create a rake on stage, and contains removable sections for creating traps. The auditorium is fully air-conditioned.
