NO UPCOMING PERFORMANCES

“‘Bones’ is a poignant, emotionally charged monologue about a young man trying to find his place in a world that doesn’t want him.”

Gritty Theatre

SUMMARY

19-year-old Mark cares for his drug-addict mum and her baby. He knows he has to make a choice that could change things forever, as he is living a life he never signed up for. But how far will he go?

‘Bones’ is a poignant, emotionally charged monologue about a young man trying to find his place in a world that doesn’t want him. Mark’s tale will chew you up, spit you out, and then make you wonder why you cared in the first place.

This harrowing play received five star reviews at the Fringe in 2011. Gritty Theatre brought their new production to Edinburgh last summer, and it was shortlisted for the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence.

Dominic 's portrayal of Mark initially comes across as a lazy, scrounging, whiny teenager, whose lack of morals suggests a most disagreeable character. However, by the end of the piece you are able to understand why he behaves like he does; Mark’s story ultimately challenges our own prejudices about young people and the way that they can behave.

Contains adult themes, nudity and strong language.

Birmingham based Gritty Theatre’s focus is to discover and nurture new audiences by performing a repertoire that consists of modern works that reflect the concerns and issues of the communities that we live and work in. We remain convinced that drama should not only change lives, but also be a part of everyday life for everyone.

We tour to not only to share our work with others, but also to fly the flag for Brum! A new production of Tom Wells’ ‘About a Goth’ was performed at the Bath Fringe and Brighton Fringe in May.
