Gritty Theatre

Bones

By Jane Upton

19-year-old Mark cares for his drug-addict mum and her baby. He knows he has to make a choice that could change things forever, as he is living a life he never signed up for. But how far will he go?
This is a poignant emotionally charged monologue about a boy trying to find his place in a world that doesn’t want him. Mark’s tale will chew you up, spit you out, and then make you wonder why you cared in the first place. Contains scenes of a very graphic and sexual nature, nudity and strong language.

Shortlisted for Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence 2015.

"The play's modest summary does not at all prepare me for Dominic Thompson’s performance."
***** Edfringe Review 2016
"The staging may be minimalist, but there is nothing plain about Dominic Thompson’s performance."
***** Edfringe Review 2016
"An ambitious, impressive and gritty piece of theatre."
**** Broadway Baby 2016
"Dominic Thompson makes the most of Jane Upton’s script and delves into the depths of the subject of her monologue"
