Carrying the weight of the world in his sports bag, a working-class lad trades his council estate for a one-way ticket out of Salford. Tom Gill’s genre-busting drama goes on a poetic journey from heartache to redemption, against a backdrop of broke lads and sh*t dads.
Combining quick-witted lyricism with original songs, the ‘ambitious and vivid’ (The Stage) Growing Pains began life at Battersea Arts Centre and enjoyed a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival 2016 as well as several UK dates. It is now on tour.
An award-winning spoken-word artist, Tom Gill is ‘Without question, one of the most edgy and vital voices on the scene’ (Reviews Hub). As an actor his recent work includes Mike Leigh’s forthcoming feature film, Peterloo.
