Overview

A coming of age story inspired by Dizzee Rascal's seminal album. In a strict Mormon household somewhere in the seam between East London and Essex, a girl is given Dizzee Rascal's ground-breaking grime album Boy in da Corner by her best friend SS Vyper. Precisely 57 minutes and 21 seconds later, her life begins to change - from feeling muted by dyslexia to spitting the power of her words; from being conflicted about her sexuality to finding the freedom to explore; from feeling alone to being given the greatest gift by her closest friend.

In this semi-autobiographical piece, step into a technicolour world where music, dance and spoken word collide, and discover how grime allowed Debris Stevenson to redefine herself.

"It's rare to come across a piece of theatre that is so gloriously and absolutely itself as this sparks-flying homage to grime music... one of the most exciting things I've seen all year... this poet deserves to be front & centre." Evening Standard
