(18 Oct – 16 Nov)

Orange Tree Theatre

Book early and get tickets from just £15 

An extraordinary play from Arinzé Kene, the writer and performer whose most recent one man play, Misty, ran at the Bush Theatre and Trafalgar Studios to widespread critical acclaim including two Olivier Award nominations and two Black British Theatre Award nominations. The Orange Tree Theatre is near Richmond Station: just 8 minutes from Clapham Junction and 16 minutes from Waterloo. Also on the Overground and District Line.

“Okay listen up, you have seventy-five years to be all you can be!”

Joanne is dipped in rudeness, rolled in attitude and is fighting to keep her life afloat. Sensitive and mature he may be, yet Kehinde struggles with an obsession for mixed race girls as he eyes his place on the social ladder. Rugrat, classclown and playground loudmouth, just wants to make it past GCSEs and keep their name on the tip of your tongue.

As their lives collide and intertwine, three extraordinary young people relay the moments they ‘grew up’. Three remarkable stories. Three incredible journeys.

“utterly magnetic… genuinely original” Time Out

“heart-warming, heart-breaking, poetic, layered, funny”

Directed by Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu, winner of the JMK Award 2019.
