Freefall - A Young Carer Never Surrenders @ John Peel Centre

Meet Jas, an ordinary seventeen year old girl who loves music and social media. But she’s got a big secret – she’s a young carer for her mother and older sister.

Freefall is a new production which fuses movement, theatre, and digital arts, and has been developed with young carers from across East Anglia.

The play highlights the difficulties faced by young carers every day in the UK, and raises the profile of support and services available to these young people.


“This has encouraged our school to think of new ways to support our Young Carers”

“A thought-provoking & well-pitched piece.”
