Doesn’t just hit you in the heart but also pulls fire up into your belly…It’s a beautifully crafted piece of writing, with precise direction and just the right mixture of laughter, tears, and the desire to act that are what make for great theatre.” Five stars black – The Fringe Review


An emotional and poignant piece of artistry… Painfully honest and unequivocally anguished, Urielle Klein-Mekongo breaks into her debut at the Edinburgh Fringe with a performance that will not easily be forgotten.” Five stars black – Ed Fest Mag



Evie is thirteen and lives in Neasden with her Mum. She wants to tell us about something… her crush on Lewis, trying to be a woman, friends, virginity, garage remixes, hello kitty underwear… an ‘Uncle’ lurking in the corner of her story. She wants to make us laugh, she’s pretty good at it. She wants to tell us something, but she daren’t let it out.


I see the way that butters-fat-lipped-troll-Patrice looks at him, now she’s the kinda lighty that finks she’s too nice.”


Based on a true story, Yvette is a one woman show with original music about a stolen childhood and growing up with a secret.


There will be a collection for Rape Crisis UK after every performance.
Winner, Young Harts Writing Fest Audience Favourite 2017, Kings Head Theatre Stella Wilkie Award 2017, The East15 Pulse Award 2017.

Yvette was first developed at East 15’s Debut Festival, a pioneering and unique event dedicated to the staging of new plays written and directed as well as performed by graduating students on the acclaimed ‘CT course’ (BA in Acting and Contemporary Theatre) developed and led by Uri Roodner.
