Teenagers' production to premiere at Camden Roundhouse

A production inspired and performed by a group of teenagers from London is to premiere next week.

The Fat Girl Gets a Haircut and Other Stories will be on at Camden's Roundhouse from Tuesday until 7 May.

It explores the experiences of cast members, including themes of love, family, sexuality and religion, and reveals them in 13 portraits.

The youngsters were aged between 12 and 15 when they were selected in open audition workshops in October 2009.

For 18 months the group has been working with artist and director Mark Storor.

The production combines a live band, animation and video in a 360-degree setting, making it the largest scale work involving young people produced by the north London venue.

Camden Roundhouse reopened in 2006 after undergoing a £29.7m facelift.

It played host to rock bands like The Rolling Stones and The Doors in the 1960s and 1970s.
