Where The Mangrove Grows
Theatre503, Until 1st December

“Families? Been it – seen it – done it. Got the badge. And Shaun, I’ll tell you this for nothing, it’s one big con job.”

Twelve year-old Shaun just can’t work it out. Why hasn’t his Mum come to visit? Why has his care-worker taken his picturebook? And who is the man at the window calling him away? With a bed for a boat, and a skirting board oar, Shaun sets off for the mangrove swamps in this darkly enchanting tale of a lost boy’s transformation.

A brave and startling vision of neglect from Royal Court Studio writer, Joe Hammond, offering a uniquely imaginative take on invisible young lives.

Contains themes that some audience members may find distressing and contains frequent uses of strong language.

Theatre503, The Latchmere, 503 Battersea Park Road, London SW11 3BW
Tickets: £14 (£9 conc)
How to book: online here or phone 020 7978 7040
