Rachael spends her days dodging suffocating visions of nuclear families in show homes, whilst trying to ignore the impending doom that she's running out of eggs. Inspired by autobiographical material, I, Myself & Me is a solo show about what it means to be a single woman in her 30s. It’s about loneliness, it's about breaking free of the pressures we put on ourselves, the ones that we’ve been reminded of since birth. It’s about risking it all, it’s about bravery and it’s about just showing up.

 ‘She’s bonkers, but she’s brilliant’ -Hackney Post

I, Myself & Me - 2016 TOUR!!! from Rachael Young on Vimeo.

Rachael Young is an artist based in Nottingham.  She makes theatre, live art, interactive installations and socially engaged projects.

In her current body of work she is exploring notions of freedom and bravery, questioning what it takes to show up and ‘wo’man up.  She is interested in uncovering hidden narratives, reading between the lines and trying to shed light on things that could spark change.

Her work is playful and political, it’s often bizarre or absurd and tends to use the personal to explore how we see the world. She is concerned with underrepresentation and uses her work to challenge this and to find a space to explore the black British experience, among other things.

Rachael has recently presented work at Battersea Arts Centre, Tate Modern, New Art Exchange, Contact, National Theatre of Wales, The Yard, //Buzzcut//, Derby Theatre and Nottingham Playhouse and has been supported by Arts Council England, Arts Connect, mac birmingham, Curve, Ovalhouse and was a recipient of the 2015 BBC Performing Arts Fund.
