Letter to the man (from the boy)
Written and performed by Henry Raby. Directed and dramaturgy by Tom Bellerby.
From Saturday morning cartoons and comics through to first crushes and first hangovers. Ever wish you could write a letter giving advice to your future self? Punk poet Henry Raby explores what’s important in life and why it still should be through engaging performance poetry.
Revisit your own history, perhaps share your own stories, while crafting your own message to the future. Honest, comic and anarchic spoken word for anyone who still gets told they should grow up.
