“The world wasn’t designed for us to succeed playboy, you gotta clock that we’re living in an uneven society.”
Summer holidays in South London, Corey dreams of nothing but hanging around with his friends while ordering as much Morley’s as possible. Until Jodie comes along and makes him realise the changes which are happening within his beloved Lewisham Borough. Making Corey, for the first time, think about what path his future takes and question his friends.
A raw and nostalgic coming of age story about growing up in South London. Directed by Almeida Theatre Resident Director T.D Moyo, Corey Bovell’s fast-paced, witty play tells a story about gentrification and the impact it’s having on the lives of its youths.
Supported by Oisel Productions, Morley’s & Afterhours.
