  • Fringe First, Edinburgh Festival Fringe - 2011

A timely, urgent, razor-sharp drama about a teenage boy fighting to save his reputation, torn between the influence of his family, his friends and his school.

Questioning where responsibility lies, Mad About the Boy explores the growing divide between the generations who gave, those who earned, and those who demand respect.
