‘Are we living in an age of anxiety?’

We commissioned Durham-born writer Tamsin Daisy Rees to write a monologue inspired by this theme. As part of this commission, Tamsin will also be working with pupils at her former school in Wolsingham.

Teddy

Fifteen-year-old Teddy spends most days after school helping out Roger with his allotment, drinking tea and eating stale custard creams. But today is the first time she’s been round in a while. And there’s stuff to be said, but she’s not sure how. And neither is Roger.

Directed by Anna Ryder and performed by Jackie Edwards, Teddy is about unlikely friendships, loneliness, the anxiety behind grief, and butternut squashes.

Following the performance, Tamsin will be joined in discussion by Caroline Dower, Head of the Counselling Service at Durham University, Dr Dave Tomson, who specialises in mental health issues and community psychiatry, and Veronica Harnett, CEO of Redcar and Cleveland Mind. Together they will discuss the issues relating to mental health and young people.
