Following its critically acclaimed premiere in 2018, this coming of age story inspired by Dizzee Rascal’s seminal album, returns for a limited run and a UK tour.
In a strict Mormon household somewhere in the seam between East London and Essex, a girl is given Dizzee Rascal’s ground-breaking grime album Boy in da Corner by her best friend SS Vyper.
Precisely 57 minutes and 21 seconds later, her life begins to change – from feeling muted by dyslexia to spitting the power of her words; from being conflicted about her sexuality to finding the freedom to explore; from feeling alone to being given the greatest gift by her closest friend.
Step into a technicolour world where music, dance and spoken word collide, and discover how grime allowed Debris Stevenson to redefine herself.
Debris Stevenson’s semi-autobiographical piece features grime MC Jammz as SS Vyper, and is directed by Royal Court Associate Ola Ince.
