Junkyard - 2017 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More


It's 1979, rubbish is on the streets, and it's tricky being Fiz. She's 13, she's got no money, her sister's pregnant and her mum thinks she’s a waste of space...

Rick remembers what it's like to be a teenager. So when he decides to build a junk playground in Bristol, he's pretty sure he has the charisma to get a bunch of reluctant kids involved. He's wrong.

But with some old-fashioned emotional bribery, Rick persuades Fiz, Higgy and Ginger to help him. And the project turns from something that means nothing to something that means a lot. And kids that care about nothing, start to care a lot. But darkness has a way of coming back and biting you when you least expect it.


Running Time: Two hours

Rose Theatre

(Kingston, )
24-26 High St., Kingston KT1 1HL, UK
