The F Word

27-30 January 2021 7.45pm Online

“They've given me six weeks. Like the summer holidays. Except I won't be going back after this one. Six weeks until the end... and we're gonna f*cking make the most of it.”

Seventeen-year-old Jacob and Tommy are ordinary teenage boys with an ordinary friendship, who happen to find themselves in a rather extraordinary situation. Why? Because Jacob is dying. A comedy drama exploring the wonder of teenage friendship and youthful positivity, even when the odds are set against you. This isn't a story about death. It's a story about life, friendship and a funeral.

‘The F Word’ by Conor Hunt, was originally produced for Edinburgh Fringe 2017.
