Blackberry Trout Face

By Laurence Wilson
Made in association with Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse - NATIONAL TOUR

A play about struggling to cope in exceptional circumstances

Kerrie sets about her daily task of preparing Mum’s heroin…
Jakey has had enough of life in the crew…
Cameron is too scared to step outside the front door…

One morning, the three teenagers discover a note in the Frosties.
Mum has abandoned them: they have been left home alone…
BLACKBERRY TROUT FACE is a bold, gritty and funny play, which explores the universal themes of family, loyalty and ambition. With sharply-drawn characters, crackling dialogue, and plenty of humour, we follow three young people as they struggle to cope in exceptional circumstances.

Based in Liverpool, 20 Stories High are now regarded as one of the most vibrant and ground-breaking theatre companies in the UKInspired and influenced by artistic collaborations with young people,
they capture the imaginations of their audiences with their bold renderings of contemporary tales.

Suitable for audiences aged 13+

UK’s best new play for young people
