Venue, Timing and Cost
“Let me tell you about Foxwood. A place that my skipping voice would not get me thrown down stairs. Unlike other schools. It was very much like other schools.”
From 1998-2002, Neal Pike attended a special educational needs school in Nottinghamshire. Five Years is about trying to hold on to a sense of who you are during those messy, brutal and mundane years of adolescence. With warmth and humour that cuts to the bone, Neal Pike explores identity, community and the parts of him that were shaped by Foxwood.
A show about school, escaping and a world that puts you into boxes.
Trigger warning: references to sexual abuse and bullying, occasional strong language.
This performance is BSL-interpreted, and relaxed.
