Blackberry Trout Face

Laurence Wilson

PaperBack (20 Sep 2011)

Kerrie sets about her daily task of preparing Mum’s heroin… Jakey has had enough of life in the crew… Cameron is too scared to step outside the front door… One morning, the three teenagers discover a note in the Frosties. Mum has abandoned them: they have been left home alone…

Blackberry Trout Face is a bold, gritty and funny play, which explores the universal themes of family, loyalty and ambition. With sharply-drawn characters, crackling dialogue, and plenty of humour, we follow three young people as they struggle to cope in exceptional circumstances. Blackberry Trout Face was comissioned and developed by award-winning theatre company 20 Stories High.

Winner of the 2010 Brian Way Award - the UK's best new play for young audiences

Shortlisted for the Manchester Evening News Best New Play Award
