Jamie’s 15 and lives in Rotherham with his mum. Since Granda Frank died she’s stopped coming out of her room and each time Jamie sees her she’s different – one day like a child, then monstrous; sometimes the awesome mum he’s always known.
Left to his own devices he’s spending more and more time online and it’s BRILLIANT. Rotherham is a million miles behind him as he soars through a digital realm of pixels, kilobits and sex. Sex, sex, sex (Thank god for the internet.) He doesn’t understand everything he reads (what a BDSM Chem-Monkey is he has no idea) but it’s okay – here he is part of something, and there are people to talk to. But there’s a wee devil dancing in Jamie’s eyes too, and he’s not sure what it might tell him to do.
Combining the intimacy and immediacy of a singer/song writer gig with theatre, this work-in-progress performance explores sexuality, class and living with mental illness in the family through soulful looped vocals and storytelling.
