Carrying the weight of the world in his JD Sports bag, a working class lad trades his council estate for a one way ticket out of Salford...

Overview

An explosive combination of spoken word, theatre, comedy and original songs, genre busting Growing Pains takes us on a journey from heartache to redemption, against the backdrop of Ladbrokes, broke lads, and shit dads.

Following a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival and a critically acclaimed UK tour, Growing Pains returns to Battersea Arts Centre.
