Mad About the Boy

Gbolahan Obisesan Mon 28 May - Sat 2 Jun, 2012
"This should be required viewing for every teenager in the capital"

Winner of an Edinburgh Fringe First Award 2011

Boy wants to be bad like the rest.
Dad wants the best for the Boy.
Man wants the Boy to do what’s best.

This timely, urgent and razor-sharp drama sees a teenage boy fighting to save his reputation. Questioning where responsibility lies, Mad About the Boy explores the growing divide between the generations who gave, those who earned, and those who demand respect.

‘Urgent...intelligently written, well-acted and thought-provoking.'
