About Bacon

‘‘I seen you looking at me. Like that. You gonna deny it? Go on. I swear down Mark – deny it.” London, present day. It’s Year 10’s first day back at school. Mark is new and too scared to make friends. Darren is out-of-control and too scary to make friends. The two need each other but neither of them would ever admit it. Worlds apart, but more similar than they realise, the pair form a complex and manipulative relationship that leads them blindly into a dangerous experiment that alter the course of both their lives. First developed at the Soho Theatre in 2018, Bacon won playwright Sophie Swithinbank Soho Theatre’s prestigious Tony Craze Award, and is also currently in development for a TV adaptation with a major production company. This production contains strong language, sexual references and sensitive subject matter.
