GRIMEBOY By Casey Bailey – The first full theatre production from award-winning poet and performer, Casey Bailey. Directed by Madeleine Kludje

Everybody has dreams, and my dream has always been easy to say, and nearly impossible to achieve. I want to be the biggest Grime MC in the country. I know what it takes: shell down raves, spin the opposition and never take my foot off the pedal. Every environment is more moody than the last, but every opportunity to shine has to be taken.I’m built for this, but there’s always more in this life. What happens when your biggest rival becomes your best friend? How do you prepare for a battle that doesn’t involve the mic and the decks?

The unmissable new play from Casey Bailey, the Birmingham Poet Laureate and winner of the Greater Birmingham Future Face of Arts and Culture 2020.
