A funny, fast-paced play about identity, truth and the challenge of finding out who you really are.

On the set of a reality television show, six remarkable, young geniuses compete for the title ‘Britain’s Brainiest Child’. As the contestants battle it out round by round, the pressure mounts, and the spotlight gets harsher. Who will win and lose- and what exactly does winning mean anyway?


All of the money made from ticket sales goes directly back into our Young Storyhouse programmes, providing young people with opportunities to work with professionals, develop skills, build confidence and work creatively. Find out more here.
