A live, rehearsed reading of Be Near Me, a new script by Sally Bird.

A girl who dared to beat the odds. Just once.

There are only two certainties we face. One of them is life itself. You are 15 years old. You have your whole life ahead of you and you discover you have five years to live. That's if you're careful. What do you do? If you're Tully Davidson, rebellious teenager, angry at her parents' divorce, you're not very careful; never have been, and now just doesn't seem like the right time to start. On her journey through adolescence, Tully finds herself trapped in a spiralling world.

Based on a true story, Be Near Me shows how you can be a winner when the world thinks you've lost.

Directed by Steve Jodrell (Big Reef, Halifax FP, Seachange, Shame).
