WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It's 1979, rubbish is on the streets of Lockleaze, and growing up is tricky for Fiz, Higgy and Ginger. Rick remembers what it's like to be a teenager. So when he decides to build a junk playground, he's pretty sure he has the charisma to get a bunch of reluctant kids involved. He's wrong. Inspired by the true story behind the Lockleaze playground known as 'The Vench', established over 30 years ago and still operating today, Junkyard is a story about Bristol, for Bristol, from BAFTA award-winning writer and Bristolian Jack Thorne
This brilliantly honest and witty new musical is a coming-of-age story about friendship and standing up for what matters
