A painful comedy about growing up and manning up.

Tobes is young, free and having a ball. Off. He's successfully ignored his lump for two years but it's starting to get in the way – cramping his style and, worse, affecting his sex life. So now there are pants to be dropped, and decisions to be made... it's a real ball ache.


"Growth has a beady wit and lots of snazzy one-liners… funny and truthful."

- Guardian

"Gripping and deeply moving from start to finish… brilliant, sensitive writing."

- British Theatre Guide

"Consolidates the career of a significant playwriting talent… Quite simply, this is everything you could want from a play on such a difficult subject. It’s so straightforward and genuinely laugh-out-loud funny as to make it a popular hit, but with an unerring connection to its characters and their responses."

- Scotsman

"Norris' script is very funny, throwing laugh-out-loud one-liners out at a rate of knots."

- WhatsOnStage

"Achingly funny and tender... of the hundreds of shows at the Fringe, few feel as necessary as this."

- Financial Times
