Young Identity presents


Imprint is an honest and introspective exploration of humanity, using poetry and theatre. Shaped around the experiences that have brought us to this place, the poets of Young Identity rhapsodise about parents, absence and mental health, as they do their very best to shed snakeskin and grow past their trauma. Young Identity return following their sell-out show Hatch Home at Push Festival 2018.

Encapsulating the spirit and essence of Manchester, with metaphor and rhythmic performance, Imprint brings the city’s finest and most fierce poets to centre stage.

★★★★ “Once again HOME stand out from the crowd with their unique performances… The cast of Imprint take the idea of performing poetry and turn it into something utterly moving.” – A Younger Theatre

★★★★★ “A refreshing ensemble performance… A highly charged, emotionally intelligent offering that simply made me want to rewind and experience it all again.” – North West End on Hatch Home
