A South-East London gangster starts to lose his grip on reality when he's forced to look back at the traumatic childhood that made him who he is. The more he remembers, the more brutal he becomes. But just when he's offered a second chance, it might all be too late. This pacey, powerful and heartbreakingly authentic exploration of hope and despair combines immersive sound and bold storytelling to create a vivid and visceral theatrical experience. Theatre Royal Plymouth co-produce an unflinching, relentless and stomach-churning new play based on lived experience.
