"[Rachael Young's] story blossoms from the piles of soil scattered around the stage. The set (designed by Naomi Kuyck-Cohen) creates powerful imagery and is hidden with all weird and wonderful things..." - Arts Award Voice

"Naomi Kuyck-Cohen is my designer and we’ve spent a lot of time talking about creating a set that feels like I own it. It’s like another character in the show." Rachael Young in an interview about I, Myself & Me for LeftLion magazine.

Rachael spends her days dodging suffocating visions of nuclear families in show homes, whilst trying to ignore the impending doom that she’s running out of eggs. Inspired by autobiographical material, I, Myself & Me is a solo show about what it means to be a single woman in her 30s. It’s about loneliness, it’s about breaking free of the pressures we put on ourselves, the ones that we’ve been reminded of since birth. It’s about risking it all, it’s about bravery and it’s about just showing up.
