Why do adults drink coffee?
What do you do in the bank?
Is it hard to let go of your past memories?

Grown Up explores the gap between what we teach our children and what they really want to know. We meet five young performers on a mission to understand the world around them. They speak the words of adults from Camden, who answered the children’s questions in interviews.

As the adults’ stories emerge, at turns moving, surprising and hilarious, the children begin to discover and question the world we have created for them and ask us to consider – is it really good enough?

Winner of People’s Theatre Award 2015.  Created by Gameshow and Emily Lim.
