About this product
- DescriptionFamilies? Been it - seen it - done it. Got the badge. And Shaun, I'll tell you this for thing, it's one big con job. Twelve year-old Shaun just can't work it out. Why hasn't his Mum come to visit? Why has his care-worker taken his picturebook? And who is the man at the window calling him away? With a bed for a boat, and a skirting board oar, Shaun sets off for the mangrove swamps in this darkly enchanting tale of a lost boy's transformation. A brave and startling vision of neglect from Royal Court Studio writer, Joe Hammond, offering a uniquely imaginative take on invisible young lives. Where the Mangrove Grows premiered at Theatre 503 on 6 November 2012 in a co-production between Theatre 503 and Number Nine Theatre.
- Author BiographyIn 2012, Joe Hammond was invited onto the Royal Court Studio Writers' Group, having previously been one of 'The Fifty' - a prestigious BBC/Royal Court initiative that selected fifty of the UK's 'most exciting emerging playwrights' for development and industry mentoring.
