Build a Rocket
A powerful and uplifting one-woman show about triumph over adversity.
Yasmin is young and feisty and lives on the edge. A young mum, her Scarborough isn't sandcastles, arcades and donkey rides. She's been dealt a rough hand and has to decide whether to give in or get smart.
A tour de force from actress Serena Manteghi, this play challenges our perceptions about young motherhood in a passionate and heart-warming way.
★★★★ "A breathless, swaggering hour of female endurance and defiance" The Telegraph
“Manteghi delivers what will surely be one of the best performances to be witnessed this Fringe”
Peter Maddern, Kryztoff RAW
“10/10 - Build A Rocket is that worthy and important kind of theatre that reminds us of things we should never have forgotten.”
Steve Davis, The Adelaide Show
“I can’t fault [Serena Manteghi's] performance in any way – she’s fabulous! No matter which way I look at [Build a Rocket], it’s superb!”
Clayton Werner, The Clothesline
