“If you plant a seed, and treat it like the dirt it’s surrounded by, it’ll grow ugly, like me…”
Carrying the weight of the world in his J.D sports bag, a working class lad trades his bag-head mates and council estate for a one-way ticket out of Salford…
Combining new writing, spoken word and original song lyrics, GROWING PAINS takes us on a poetic journey from heartache to redemption, against the backdrop of broke lads and shit dads.
Originally commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, GROWING PAINS first premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 to critical acclaim.
‘Ambitious and Vivid’
‘A breath of fresh air’
