HighRise Theatre with Black Theatre Live & Stratford Circus Arts Centre present
By Joseph Barnes-Phillips
Directed by Dominic Garfield
When the euphoric highs of teenage life in south London collide with his mum’s terminal illness, all Rayleigh wants to do is watch anime in his pants and eat indomie.
Love, life and msaculinity meet head-on as Rayleigh tries to find his feet, torn between the new girl in his life and being there for his mum, while trying not to make the same mistakes as his dad.
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.
HighRise is a theatre collective that seeks to spark conversation and build bridges between forgotten communities by representing the rhythm of the streets. With family roots spreading five continents we have a unique approach to telling stories.
Following a long list of critical acclaim in 2016, several shows at the Edinburgh Fringe in the summer (2017) and Big Foot touring the UK this Autumn, HighRise is starting to make a name for itself as a company willing to take risks and bring a new flavour to the palettes of audiences.
‘…Friendly, funny and frank throughout, they share an irresistible, knockabout charm…’ **** Fergus Morgan, The Stage (for Merryville)
This production will be staged in the intimate surroundings of our Studio Theatre where seating is on an unallocated basis.
