Tom Gill: Growing Pains

“If you plant a seed, and treat it like the dirt it’s surrounded by, it’ll grow ugly, like me…”

Carrying the weight of the world in his J.D sports bag, a working class lad trades his bag-head mates for a one-way ticket out of Salford…

Following its sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival 2016, critically acclaimed Growing Pains returns to tour the UK.

Combining quick-witted lyricism with original songs, Gill’s genre-bending and unflinching drama takes us on a poetic journey from heartache to redemption against the backdrop of Ladbrokes, broke lads and sh*t dads.
