Nominated for 7 OffWestEnd Awards and The Stage Debut Award for Best Writer, Shook was due to transfer to the West End. Then coronavirus hit.
 
Now this “startlingly funny” (WhatsOnStage) show has been especially revived in collaboration with a BAFTA-winning filmmaker.

“He’ll look different. My little boy. When I get out. Like… to the picture I’ve got in my head. Be like meeting him all over again. Be a whole new start.”

Instead of GCSEs, Cain, Riyad and Jonjo got sentences. Inside a young offenders’ institution they trade sweets, chat shit, kill time – and await fatherhood.

Grace’s job is to turn these teenagers into parents, ready to take charge of their futures. But can they grow up quickly enough?
