GROWING PAINS is Tom's debut solo show commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre.
Written in verse and featuring original songs, this genre busting production premiered at Edinburgh Festival before touring the UK in 2017/2018 with House Theatre.
A semi-autobiographical play-come-musical, Growing Pains tells the story of a young lads journey from heartache to redemption, against the backdrop of Ladbrokes, broke lads, and shit dads.
Combining comedy, spoken word, music and theatre, the show was winner of Ideas Tap Innovators award 2016, and published in 2018 by Playdead Press.
