Description

Football, fathers, friendship. Teetering on the edge of manhood, 18-year-old Jonno spends his summer days playing footy with his best mate, Sol. He’s desperate for a role model but on Holly Grove council estate, a decent father figure is hard to come by. One fateful Father’s Day in East London, Jonno finally comes face-to-face with the dad he always wanted. New bonds are formed whilst others come crashing down. An original double award-winning (Marlowe Other Prize, Mustapha Matura Award) play by Chakira Alin.

One not to be missed!!
A truly fantastic storyline that took us through a rollercoaster of emotions so professionally and skilfully by a very talented group all playing their parts amazingly.
Very cleverly written, loved it.
Go see this one, you won’t be disappointed!

Probably the most moving show we have seen during our week at the fringe - definitely worth getting up earlier for. We laughed but then we cried - the writing is excellent - looking forward to seeing more by Chakira Alin - very talented young writer. The cast were excellent - the two lead actors built a strong emotional connection with the audience. Once you are there suggest you stay for the next show too - Life before the Line which comes from the same group. You will not be disappointed!

I loved this play. It was well written, current and the 2 leads (and young cast) were excellent. Please support this worthy drama.

Saw this today and recommend it. Young cast, very well acted, early play by a writer who should go far.
