Exclusive Video: Multiple Award-Nominated Team Behind West End Hit SID Return with KICKED IN THE SH*TTER
Depression. Sanctions. Anxiety. Self harm. Back to work. Substance Abuse.
JSA. AA. ESA. FA. PIP. It's grim out there. It's grim everywhere.
Sibling love and sibling dependency; Kicked in the Sh*tter is a tale of brother and sister struggling to live with mental health difficulties amidst the labyrinthine wreckage of a decayed welfare state.
This isn't poverty porn; there's nothing sexy about despair.
BroadwayWorld brings you an exclusive trailer for the show below!
Life is pretty shit when you're trapped in a forever darkening world of incompassionate government policy with no way out. Holding on to each other might be the only thing stopping you drown. Leon Fleming's new play is a story of struggle and hope for those who fall through the cracks today and every day.
Kicked in the Sh*tter is co-commissioned by Theatre in the Mill, Bradford and comes from the team that created the five star, award nominated West End hit Sid.
Director Scott Le Crass says of the production:
Leon's play handles a heavy subject matter but is not without its lightness, especially being about sibling love, those familiar childhood squabbles and aspirations we can all recognise. The play is set in Birmingham, but the situations are lived by many other people throughout the UK, giving it a national relevance.
