This vibrant, provocative drama focuses on teenage girls in Liverpool who can’t wait to grow up. Joanna Mosscroft is 14 and desperate to change. She wants to be older, prettier, and she wants to be cool. But more than anything she wants to lose her virginity. Sensible best mate Katie, cool, sophisticated and sexually experienced Sophie and rule-breaking Lisa form the group of friends Joanna most admires. But it’s a compelling and sometimes dark adventure from the rosy glow of Jo’s dream adult world, to the shocking reality she’s about to experience. Pleasureland’s heady backdrop of lights on the prom, boys who are that little bit too old and the dangers of growing up too fast provide a thoroughly real and sometimes frightening glimpse of modern teenage Britain.
