Miss Yesterday began life in 2004 as one of Alan Ayckbourn’s plays for young people at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough...
Life in your teens, as Tammy discovers, can be unfair and even cruel. School is a disaster and at home she can do nothing right. Then something really terrible happens. When she gets the chance to undo the tragedy, she grabs the opportunity. But is it possible to change the world around you without changing yourself?
