Tobes is young, free and having a ball off.


He's successfully ignored his lump for two years but it's starting to get in the way – cramping his style and,

'Norris' script is very funny, throwing laugh-out-loud one-liners out at a rate of knots' WhatsOnStage

'Gripping and deeply moving from start to finish… brilliant, sensitive writing' British Theatre Guide

'Achingly funny and tender... of the hundreds of shows at the Fringe, few feel as necessary as this' Financial



'Consolidates the career of a significant playwriting talent… Quite simply, this is everything you could want

from a play on such a difficult subject. It’s so straightforward and genuinely laugh-out-loud funny as to make it a popular hit, but with an unerring connection to its characters and their responses' Scotsman

'Growth has a beady wit and lots of snazzy one-liners… funny and truthful' Guardian
