Kayleigh Llewellyn’s critically acclaimed, dark dramedy In My Skin returns in November after what seems too long a gap. Llewellyn, mined her own experiences to create this coming-of-age story about a teenage girl leading a double life.
We follow Bethan (Gabrielle Creevy) while she desperately tries to keep the truth of her home life a secret from her friends. But when your mother (Jo Hartley) is sectioned in a mental facility near your school and has a penchant for breaking out, and your father (Rhodri Meilir), is a Hell’s Angel who drives a rag and bone truck — flying under the radar ain’t so easy. Bethan’s quick wit can only take her so far as she digs herself into a pit of her own lies.
