Growingup in Kilburn siblings Madani, Maryam and school mate Alex hit it off from themoment they meet. 10 years later, playground chats about ninja turtles,annoying aunties and secret swearing have been kicked out by teen opinionspowered by podcasts, porn and politics.

Still,best friends can talk about anything. So why are there suddenly so many thingsleft unsaid between the three?

Acomedy drama play about coming of age in a world of information overload andweaponised language. After critically acclaimed runs at Edinburgh Fringe(2019), VAULT and The New Normal

festivals(2020) Chatback Theatre is delighted for If This Is Normal to be heading out ona UK tour.

"5STARS - Danser's piece says a lot of things that desperately need to be said."

TheReviews Hub

"Deliveredby three compelling actors, this is the sort of play that people can't

stoptalking about on their way home, splitting opinions and sparking debate."

EverythingTheatre

"Danseris good at digging into the emotional mess of the situation

andexploring how outside influences - porn, religion, their parents -

candistort young people's ideas about intimacy."

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
