From the show:
Édouard Louis was born into poverty in working-class France. He was bullied relentlessly for being gay. And he was utterly desperate to escape.
Written when he was just 21, Louis’ internationally acclaimed autobiographical novel The End of Eddy captures his deeply resonant coming-of-age story. Now, in this compelling and charismatic staging (introducing Oseloka Obi and James Russell-Morley), we bear witness to his affecting reflections on youth, sexuality, class, power, and freedom.
This is a story for anyone who has ever felt like they didn’t fit in.
See it if You like stories that talk about sexuality and class no matter how poorly the adaptation is presented.
Don't see it if If you prefer theatre where you're shown and not told. This often felt like a lecture, not theatre.
