The government have advised that, whilst stopping short of forcing theatres and cinemas to close, people should stay away, and so Storyhouse will be temporarily closed from Tuesday 17 March. We are not yet sure how long this will be for, but this does affect a number of events, shows and screenings.

This film is no longer planned to go ahead, and we are working to see if we can find an alternative date.

We are humbled by the support of our staff, volunteers and wider community and thank you for your patience as we work through each event and contact all customers. There is no need to get in touch with us.

Remember to stay safe and look after each other.

The third feature from Sarah Gavron (Suffragette, Brick Lane) is the story of a teenage girl growing up in London’s East End. Rocks (Bukky Bakray) has big dreams for the future, great friends, and an adoring younger brother. But when her unstable mother leaves home her world is turned upside down. A largely female cast and a predominately female film crew come together to create a film that movingly celebrates the power of female friendship.
