A Reason to Carry On


University of Essex,
Wivenhoe Park,


Written by Riordan Deegan

‘I’m not saying I changed my mind in a day. But suddenly I could make sense of how I felt.’

Meet Max. He’s a college student dealing with teenage life, bullies and homework. All while coming to terms with being gay.

A Reason to Carry On is an original drama depicting one teenage boy’s journey to discover who he is and where he belongs, through themes of sexuality, identity and loneliness.
