This is a play about the beautiful, messy and joyful journey through teenagehood.

It’s about memory, joy and dreams for the future. It’s about beaches and GCSEs. It’s about what it’s like to be told to grow up, but never being given the space to do that.

Join eight teenagers as they discover themselves and the world together.

Grow Up is co-created with and performed by the company of thirteen to sixteen-year-olds from Islington, drawing upon their life experiences.

Company Three returns to Park Theatre with Grow Up, written and directed by Amber Ruby and created as part of the Grow Up Exchange, a collaboration between Beyond Face, Company Three, Mortal Fools and Prime Theatre.
