Miss-trusted. Miss-treated. Miss you. Welcome to a miss-spent youth. Eileen’s sister just died while eating a Yorkshire pudding. Ironic as she rarely eats; well, ate. Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon is a call to arms for young women everywhere, and questions why society isn’t watching out for our girls as they navigate fading friendships, f**ked up families and forging a trail through adolescence.
Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon had a sell-out preview run at the Old Red Lion Theatre in February 2020, and subsequent performances at the Barn Theatre’s first Summer outdoor theatre festival, BarnFest in August 2020.
In October 2021, Day’s debut book Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon a nonfiction guide for teenage girls to survive and thrive in their adolescence was published by leading publisher Hachette.
