Introducing Johnny, a theatrical play following the day to day life of a Black British Cockney. An extremely complex and volatile character who uses his larger than life persona to battle the demons of his past. JOHNNY is a dark comedy set in 21st century London, a take on modern society, a changing society. The play will challenge individuals preconceived ideas on mental health, race, gender, class and sexuality.
“Johnny is pacey and engaging, with strong touches of theatricality and atmosphere” Adam Narat – Royal Court Theatre
