Christmas is a time for those you love, and for those you love you do whatever it takes.

Stuck between a rock and a really hard place, a teenage boy kidnaps his little brother in a bid to flee his decrepit council flat and escape his daily encounters with the authorities. But with nowhere to go and no one to turn to, what kind of future do they face?

"Occasionally you see a house that's suggestive of festivity. 
Broken Christmas lights hang from windows,
And tinsel is tied to doors.
Before the coming storm"

Written entirely in verse, this candid one man show switches seamlessly between the innocence of childhood and the very real struggle of being fcuk'd by an unfair system, shining a light on the all-too-real experiences of young working-class men in Britain today.
