Growing Pains

written and performed by Tom Gill

Carrying the weight of the world in his sports bag, a working class lad trades his mates for a one-way ticket out of Salford. Combining quick-witted lyricism with original songs, Tom Gill’s genre-bending and unflinching drama takes us on a poetic journey from heartache to redemption, against the backdrop of betting shops, broke lads, and sh*t dads.

Tom Gill is one of the most edgy and vital voices on the Spoken Word scene. Critically-acclaimed Growing Pains originated at Battersea Arts Centre, enjoyed a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival in 2016 and is now on a UK tour.
