Hungry Man's Lucy Forbes Directs New BBC Three Comedy-Drama

In My Skin is a darkly comic, coming of age story which follows the double life led by 16-year-old Bethan Gwyndaf. To her school friends, she portrays herself as an ordinary, cocky teen, full of confidence. The reality, however, is a different story.

Set in Cardiff, it shows Bethan dealing with a troubled life at home that sees her bi-polar mother Katrina sectioned by the crisis team at a psychiatric hospital. Her alcoholic father displays a lack of compassion to the situation, and Bethan fights hard to hide the truth of the life she really leads from her best friends, Travis and Lydia, and her teachers.

There's heartache, laughs, and shame as Bethan handles the complexities of going through puberty, and of everyday school life. The respect of her peers and of her teacher Ms Morgan for her writing is something Bethan secretly desires. 

In My Skin was written by rising screenwriting star Kayleigh Llewellyn and directed by Hungry Man's Lucy Forbes. Available now on BBC iPlayer.
