‘Very much a play of today… Fallowfield’s cast gives a high-energy, snappy, thrilling performance.’ York Press

14 year old Chelsea lives in Acomb, York – and as far as she’s concerned her life is a mess. But she’s got a plan. With the help of best mates Lee and Dionne, she’s going to turn things around and star in her own reality drama. Soon enough, everyone wants a piece of Chelsea’s reality, but can life in front of the lens refocus the many troubles behind it?

The Only Way Is Chelsea’s is a funny, dark but touching tale about one girl’s quest to reinvent her own reality and what can happen when you get what you wish for.
