The Olive Boy

The Olive Boy

A crude, compelling, coming of age comedy

After the sudden death of his mother, a grieving yet quintessentially teenage boy is forced to change schools and move in with his, until that point, absent father.

In a hopeless attempt to stay sane, he decides that the only way to move forward is to pursue the chances of him finally getting a real girlfriend. Like most things in his life, it does not go to plan.

A tour de force of ecstasy, emotion and grief. 

- Broadway Baby

A show full of grief, hope, and a great deal of olives. Based on Ollie Maddigan’s real life story, The Olive Boy is a crude, compelling comedy that will leave audiences deciding whether to laugh or cry.

Following its month-long SELL OUT run at the Edinburgh Fringe, The “brilliant & thought provoking” Olive Boy tours the UK this Spring.

Fantastic! Ollie Madigan is one to watch

Steve Pemberton - (League of Gentlemen, Inside No.9)

'A powerful, self-assured performance.'
