The IT performed by Worlds End Productions
The IT by Vivienne Franzmann, performed by Worlds End Productions.
The IT is a play about a teenage girl who has something growing inside her. She doesn't know what it is, but she knows it's not a baby. It expands in her body. It starts in her stomach, but quickly outgrows that, until eventually it takes over the entirety of her insides. It has claws. She feels them. Does it have teeth, skin, and hair as well, or is that feathers, or spikes she can feel, butting up against her organs? What is it?
Then the It tries to escape from her body. She can't let that happen. She cuts an isolated weird figure at school, trying to live her life 'normally; but battling to keep The It inside of her. But she can't contain it forever, sooner or later something's got to give...
