"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...

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre and following a critically acclaimed sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival 2016, Growing Pains will be touring the UK throughout 2017/18.
