nothing can detract from the wonderful performances turned in by Austin and Mills, who without a shred of sentimentality take us to the heart of adolescent confusion and longing, and put poverty and violence so succinctly into context.  ★★★★  The List

the richness of the detail with which [the story] is told offers some unforgettable insights 
★★★★  The Scotsman

the actors win our trust with their vigour, empathy and theatrical inventiveness. 
★★★★  The Guardian

‘My crime wasn’t doing something. My crime was being something. Being different in a way everyone else could see.’
 
Born into poverty in an isolated village in rural France, a boy grows up amongst hard men and women living hard and violent lives. Bullied relentlessly for being gay, this is the story of Eddy’s struggle to understand who he is, who he might become, and of his fight to escape.
 
Written when he was just 21 and combining vivid storytelling with frank reflections on sexuality, class and power, Édouard Louis’ acclaimed autobiographical novel of hope, love, lust and anger is both unflinchingly honest and hugely entertaining. This new stage adaptation is a co-production from London’s Unicorn Theatre, the UK’s leading theatre for young audiences, and Scotland’s pioneering Untitled Projects team, reuniting visionary director, designer Stewart Laing and writer Pamela Carter whose Paul Bright’s Confessions of a Justified Sinner was at Dublin Theatre Festival 2014.
 
Suitable for ages 16+.
Contains strong language and explicit sexual references.
 
Supported by Arts Council England, the National Lottery through
Creative Scotland’s Open Project Fund and by a Federation of Scottish
Theatre Assistant Director Bursary with funding from Creative Scotland.
