Background


Winner of the 2019 Papatango New Writing Prize from 1406 entries, Samuel Bailey's debut full production tenderly and honestly examines the young men society shuts away.


Shook follows previous Papatango discoveries who have gone on to win BAFTAs, OffWestEnd and Alfred Fagon awards and premiere worldwide.


Synopsis


“He'll look different.


My little boy.


When I get out.


Like… to the picture I've got in my head.


Be like meeting him all over again.


Be a whole new start.”


Instead of GCSEs, Cain, Riyad and Jonjo got sentences.


Locked up in a young offenders' institution, they trade sweets, chat shit, kill time - and await fatherhood.


Grace's job is to turn these teenagers into parents, ready to take charge of their futures.


But can they grow up quickly enough to escape the system?
