Following in the footsteps of contemporary storytelling comedians like Daniel Kitson, Simon Topping reviews the highs and lows of growing up in the 1980’s in the Lancashire, exploring the weight of expectation placed upon his increasingly plump shoulders to be a “man”.
This, his first ever one man show: “Why I had to leave the North”, is a touching and funny portrayal of the struggles of a young boy suppressing all his emotion after the death of his father, whilst learning to cope with life through a series of distractions and the love of cheese.
MARCH 23rd and 24th 2018 – Part of the Hove Grown Festival
The show starts at 8pm on both nights and runs for an hour.
