Molly Naylor & Iain Ross

If Destroyed Still True

If Destroyed Still True
6-17 August (not 11) 6pm
Drill Hall Studio

Last year Molly saw an old school friend in a sauna. Rather than engage in small talk, she found a way to hide from her in what’s essentially a small, hot shed.

It was weird.

It occurred to her that her relationship with her teenage self might be slightly dysfunctional.

If Destroyed Still True is a new storytelling show from Molly Naylor (BBC Radio 4′s Whenever I Get Blown Up I Think Of You) and musician Iain Ross (Bearsuit, Mega Emotion).

Part autobiography, part fictional story about 15-year-old Jane’s battle to stop her house falling into the ocean; If Destroyed Still True is a show about youth, friendship, growing up and our relationship with our teenage selves. Contains loud guitars, the sea and cringing.

‘Does everything new and worth having come at the cost of something old and worth keeping?’ – Carl Jung*

* Probably Carl Jung. It might have been Coolio.

Funny, tough, beautiful writing
The Guardian, on Molly

Catchy, buoyant, unhinged
