About Shook

Nominated for 7 OffWestEnd Awards and The Stage Debut Award for Best Writer, Shook was due to transfer to the West End. Then coronavirus hit and theatres closed for the first time in a century. We are delighted now to share this film capture of the original world premiere, especially revived in collaboration with a BAFTA-winning filmmaker. “He’ll look different. My little boy. When I get out. Like… to the picture I’ve got in my head. Be like meeting him all over again. Be a whole new start.” Instead of GCSEs, Cain, Riyad and Jonjo got sentences. Locked up in a young offenders’ institution, they trade sweets, chat shit, kill time – and await fatherhood. Grace’s job is to turn these teenagers into parents, ready to take charge of their futures. But can they grow up quickly enough to escape the system?
