You’re It began as a concept titled Mezzanine, written by Jacquetta May, and was then developed into You’re It and performed by one of the Youth Theatre companies at the time: a group of young people studying the Creative Arts Course at City and East London College.

You’re It was one of several productions performed by the City and East Youth Theatre group in 1984, including other works such as Love Encounters of an Alien Kind and Mother Courage and her Children, the latter of which was performed at Hoxton Hall.

The actors and creative team listed below were those from all the productions, though some people may only have been involved in one. Jacquetta May, and colleagues in the Half Moon Young People’s Ensemble at the time all worked with different satellite Youth Theatre groups such as this one across the year.
