Synopsis


In an age when masculinity is in crisis, this is both a show about what it means to be a man from a broken background and what it means to be a woman who has loved a man like that.


The show celebrates the ingenuity of the thief and the chancer - the bad boy - but also reaches out to him with love, compassion and understanding, aims to give colourful insight into the lives of those living on the edge in society.


The remarkable life of Jamie Joseph Patrick Keogh is channeled in this one-woman show inspired by interviews with and acting as a celebration of men who have been involved with drugs, been through the criminal justice system and had to cope with adversity.


Born into poverty and madness, Jamie is a force to be reckoned with.


He survives on wit,laughter and ingenious schemes.


Whether its sprinting on sports day, chasing oblivion or running away from cops, it seems to be only a matter of time for him before a crash comes.
