Ambitious and Vivid ★★★★ The Stage
About the event
“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 for a one-way ticket out of Salford…
Combining quick-witted spoken word with original songs, Gill’s explosive drama takes us on a poetic journey against the backdrop of Ladbrokes, broke lads and shit dads.
Following its sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival 2016, critically acclaimed Growing Pains returns to tour the UK.
‘Incredibly accomplished… a breath of fresh air’ ★★★★ The Scotsman
