“He’s got a knife, and he’s not afraid to use it. How did this likeable, working-class young Northerner end up poised and ready to stab someone, staring into the red of their eyes?”
Combining quick-witted lyricism with original songs, Tom Gill's genre-bending and unflinching drama takes us on a poetic journey from heartache to redemption, against the backdrop of Ladbrokes, broke lads, and sh*t dads.
Without question, Tom Gill is one of the most-edgy and vital voices on the Spoken Word scene. His recent work includes a new film by Mike Leigh.
Critically-acclaimed Growing Pains originated at Battersea Arts Centre and enjoyed a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival in 2016. Now on a UK tour, it is perfect for The Spring's intimate venue, and for comedy and music fans who are looking to try something different!
