About: Growing Pains

If you plant a seed, and treat it like the dirt it's surrounded by, it'll grow ugly, like me...

Written by Tom Gill, Growing Pains is an explosive new drama that gives a thrilling twist to the conventional coming of age story.

Combining quick-witted lyricism with original songs, Gill's genre-bending and unflinching production takes us on a poetic journey from heartache to redemption against the backdrop of Ladbrokes, broke lads, and shit dads.

Told through the eyes of a young, working-class lad, Tom trades his baghead mates for a one-way ticket out of his hometown. But still carrying the weight of the world in his JD Sports bag, he'll need more than a Young Person's Railcard and a bag of magic mushrooms for the journey he's about to take...

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre
Growing Pains will be doing a full run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 at the Underbelly Cowgate, 4 – 28 Aug.
