About this show

Oscar is 10. He lives in a children's hospital. It's a frantic, magnificent and scary place, and he feels very much alone. Granny Rose is old. She's a hospital volunteer and knows a lot about wrestling. And she doesn't mind telling the truth about grown-up stuff. With little time and big questions, Oscar embarks on a fast-forward adventure through life and all of the moves it has to throw at him - first love, responsibility and kissing with tongues. Based on Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt's internationally acclaimed novel, this magical play by Bryony Lavery reminds us to live every day like it's the last.

World Premiere.
