Grime and coming-of-age in Big Foot at the Theatre Royal

A teenager's tale

The highly-acclaimed coming-of-age tale Big Foot is coming to Margate’s Theatre Royal.

Love, life and masculinity meet head-on as Joseph Barnes-Phillips tells his poignant story with a twist of the fantastical.

When the euphoric highs of teenage life in south London collide with terminal illness and family pressure, what is the right thing to do? Worrying about school, girls and status on the streets, Big Foot puts you in a teenager’s footsteps as Joseph stumbles and strives to find a path to the present day.

With Guyanese folk stories, grime, roti and raucous energy, Big Foot is a funny and impassioned portrayal of becoming a man and the responsibility that comes with it.

The show, created by HighRise Theatre with Black Theatre Live and Stratford Circus Arts Centre, paints a complex portrait of black youth, machismo with sensitivity and wit and includes quick-fire rhymes, slang and hip hop.

It is aimed at those aged 14 and over.

Big Foot is at the Theatre Royal on October 12 at 7.30pm

Booking fees – 50p per ticket in person/phone. £1.50 per ticket online
