Growth - Paines Plough Presents

A comedy about growing up and manning up from critically acclaimed writer Luke Norris (so here we are, Royal Exchange; goodbye to all that, Royal Court). Winner of a prestigious Fringe First Award at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, GROWTH embarks on its second national tour.

“It’s a lump in a bag of lumps. It’s fine.” Tobes is young, free and having a ball. Off.

He’s successfully ignored his lump for two years but it’s starting to get in the way - cramping his style and, worse, affecting his sex life. So now there are pants to be dropped, and decisions to be made… It’s a real ball ache.

Stamford Arts Centre is Standing Up To Cancer with Cancer Research UK this October. CRUK will be giving people the opportunity to donate to this month’s campaign when they come to watch Paines Plough's award-winning show Growth, performed on Wed 11 Oct at 7.30pm. 

'A laugh out loud comedy that offers a rare insight into a young man dealing with an overwhelming problem.' 

Growth is one of the only plays around that talks about the taboo subject of male health, in particular Testicular Cancer, depicted in an open and accessible way. If you liked Him and Her, Catastrophe or Knocked-Up you'll find Growth hugely entertaining!
