Carrying the weight of the world in his JD sports bag, a working class lad trades his council estate and stoner mates for a one way ticket to the capital.
Combining theatre, comedy, spoken word and original songs, GROWING PAINS follows a young man's journey from heartache to redemption.
This "ambitious and vivid" (The Stage) production was winner of Ideas Tap Innovators award in 2016, enjoying a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe festival to critical acclaim. The show toured the UK in 2017/18 and was published by Playdead Press.
