by Corey Bovell produced by Oisel Productions & Rua Arts
During the summer holidays of 2009 Corey dreams of nothing but to hang around with his friends while ordering as much Morley’s as possible. Until Jodie comes along and makes Corey realise the changes that are happening within his beloved Lewisham Borough. Making Corey, for the first time, think about what path his future takes.
After a sold-out run during last year’s Camden Fringe, Corey Bovell has taken his societal tales across London theatres including The Pleasance, Tristan Bates, Arcola, The Vault & Ovalhouse.
Press for this production
Corey Bovell is a master story-teller who oozes charisma, captivating his audience throughout. He is able to truly capture those moments he describes, drawing you in, even when he’s just telling you about ordering his Chicken Burger N Chips. It’s a deeply personal play and this comes through in both the writing and the performance… Kwame Asiedu’s direction brings it to life with energy and emotion…I hope it gets a further run so more people are able to experience this. ★★★★ Dress Circle Reviews
For 75 breathless, high energy minutes, writer/performer Corey painted a vivid picture of life on the mean streets of Lewisham, with good friends, a loving family, and the best fried chicken in South London… Corey Bovell enacts that significance with brilliant effect and makes the story of ‘a good boy in a bad borough’ powerful and telling… I loved the powerful performance.
