Abstract

Growing Pains was inspired by the experiences of teenage mothers, as researched by Julia Darling, and featured Kay Hepplewhite, Huffty Reah and Cindy Afflick. The play emphasises decision-making and choice based on information and education. ‘The main aim of the play is that you have control over your life,’ Julia told the Newcastle Post. Despite the difficulties involved in teenage pregnancy, she also hoped to highlight ‘the positive aspect to young motherhood’.
