“Brims with humour, charm and deep affection” WILTSHIRE TIMES

Up Down Boy

Matty is off to college in an hour – and he’s left it to Mum to pack his case. She won’t miss the slamming doors, the queue for the bathroom and the phone bills. But Matty is no ordinary teenager – and will his mother cope without him?

This honest and uplifting play was inspired by the extraordinary life story of a boy with Down’s syndrome and his mother’s humorous perspective on bringing him up.

The current UK tour includes performances in The Shed – The National Theatre’s new performance space.
