A little slow, Heartbreaking, Funny, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if you enjoy a well-performed one-person show.

Don’t see it if you need the most riveting show. It has moments of real impact and an earnestness throughout, but doesn’t quite connect as much as it wants.

More information about Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon

Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon has previously been performed at Islington’s Old Red Lion Theatre, Cirencester’s Barn Theatre, and most recently at Southwark Playhouse in 2022. The show has been widely praised for its forthright exploration of challenging themes including eating disorders, mental health, social ostracisation, and dysfunctional families.

Writer Rosie Day previously performed the show herself; now she passes on the baton to Charithra Chandran for the play's West End run. Chandran captivated audiences as husband-seeking debutante Edwina Sharma in the second season of Netflix’s Regency-era romantic romp Bridgerton, and she now makes her West End debut with this powerful monologue.

A former child actor, Day knows first-hand what it’s like to be in the spotlight as a young person. She made her screen debut aged four in the BBC’s Hope and Glory, and performed at the National Theatre and Royal Court as a child and a teenager. On screen, she is best known for playing Mary Hawkins in Outlander. The production is directed by Georgie Straight, associate director of Operation Mincemeat (Fortune Theatre).

What to watch for

  • Charithra Chandran has a degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from the University of Oxford and was going to take a job with an international consultancy firm before deciding to pursue acting professionally during the pandemic.
  • As a teenager, Rosie Day appeared in The Spur of the Moment at the Royal Court, written by the 17-year-old Anya Reiss.
  • The play inspired a self-help book of the same name curated by Day, containing letters and advice for teenagers from 30 inspirational women including Susan Wokoma, Carrie Hope Fletcher, and Naoise Dolan.
