"If I god almighty himself,
and destroyed this first attempt at life.
What would my second version be?
...a dead end of endless possibility."
A boy wakes up in the middle of a field in London, surrounded by the remnants of the night before. This pedlar boy takes us on a journey through the privileged and corrupt doorsteps of London as he searches for the one thing he has been missing his entire life. This beautiful one-man play explores through spoken word society's treatment of the homeless, and young-offenders trying to find a second chance.
Peddling opened at the Maddermarket Theatre in February of 2019, and was produced by Coast To Coast Theatre Company.
***** "This is a powerful and captivating work, and should make us think about how we treat the many young people who have not been given a stable and secure start in life." - Norwich Eye.
