Eighteen-year-old Romeo is a single dad struggling to make ends meet. Julie is breaking away from expectations to follow her dream of studying at Cambridge. They live just a few roads apart, but their family lives could not be more different. When they fall madly in love, the teens find conflicting pressures pulling them apart.
With previous hits including Violence and Son (Royal Court, 2015) and Iphigenia in Splott (National Theatre, 2016), Gary Owen has a proven talent for making pressing social issues into vivid, bitterly funny drama. This new play reunites Owen with director Rachel O'Riordan.
