SHOUT 17 - The Ultimate Lad

SHOUT 17 - The Ultimate Lad

This is a story about growing up, about belonging, about fathers and sons, about being a man, and about being yourself. It's also a story about someone who happens to be trans.

A work-in-progress performance of the new collaboration between actor Ash Palmisciano (King Lear, RSC) and Olivier Award-winning playwright Jon Brittain (Rotterdam, Arts Theatre).

Ash is an actor, presenter and diversity role model volunteer who most recently appeared in the RSC’s smash hit production of King Lear (RSC), hit TV show Boy Meets Girl (BBC) and Ricky Beadle Blair's Summer in London (Theatre Royal Stratford East). Jon is a writer and director who wrote the critically acclaimed Rotterdam (Theatre503, Trafalgar Studios) and created the cult hit Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho (Theatre503, Leicester Square Theatre).

​This work-in-progress performance will be presented immediately after And The Rest Of Me Floats.
