Save the date! Big Foot opens at Stratford Circus Art Centre on the 4th of October.A semi-autobiographical coming of age story about learning to take care of the ones we love. Written by Joseph Barnes-Phillips and directed by Dominic Garfield, the UK tour runs from 4 October to 10 November.
The Story: When the euphoric highs of teenage life in South London collide with his mum’s terminal illness, all Rayleigh wants to do is watch anime in his pants and eat indomie. Love, life and masculinity meet head-on as Rayleigh tries to find his feet, torn between the new girl in his life and being there for his mum, while trying not to make the same mistakes as his dad.
With Guyanese folk stories, grime, roti and raucous energy, Big Foot is a funny and impassioned portrayal of becoming a man and the responsibility that comes with it.
Big Foot is made in conjunction with #BlackTheatreLive, a pioneering national consortium of touring theatres led by Tara Arts, working to transform the landscape for Black and Asian theatre across the UK.
