We Just Keep Going opens at Hen & Chickens Theatre

We Just Keep Going

We Just Keep Going starts its three week run at the Hen & Chickens Theatre in Islington this week, starring Elle van Knoll, Hilary Tones, Sam Parks and Scott Westwood.

Written and produced by Elle van Knoll, We Just Keep Going is a touching play about love, family and the fraught relationship between mother and daughter. Watching her daughter Ruby (Elle van Knoll) grow into a young adult, Susan (Hilary Tones) must find a way to forge their fragile relationship before it’s too late. But a typical relationship between a teenager and her mother quickly turns into more than meets the eye when the past and the men in their lives keep finding a way to come between them.

Filled with unexpected turns, awkward sexual encounters, teenage confusion and plenty of mother-daughter explosions, We Just Keep Going is a sharp new comedy about change. This hysterical and heart-breaking drama is full incredibly touching and reminds us how unconditional love conquers all.

We Just Keep Going features a talented cast with Elle van Knoll, whose recent credits include Inigo and Atlantis, starring as teenage daughter Ruby. Hilary Tones (Wire in the Blood, Persuasion) is to play Susan, with Sam Parks (Les Miserables, Silent Witness) as David, and Scott Westwood (Sam Wanamaker Festival, Inigo) playing Michael. Award-winning director Helen Oakleigh is directing the performance.

We Just Keep Going is on at The Hen & Chickens Theatre in Islington from 1-19 September 2015. Tickets are priced at £15 and £12 for concessions.
