  • grow up G

Now published by Josef Weinberger Plays!

Genre: Comedy Drama

Author: Steel, Gordon

Poppy is eleven and has attitude. When she finds herself living with her cantankerous grandfather, a man she neither likes or loves all hell breaks loose. Something of a hermit, a man living in the past who sees very little good in anything or anybody, Ken is suddenly and unexpectedly confronted by a tornado of energy who can’t sit still and asks too many questions. He is a man with no television, no computer and no patience, and while their relationship is volatile it’s also very funny and strewn with moments of real tenderness.

Grow up Grandad is an inter-generational story that deals with love and loss, hope and sadness as the relationship between Poppy and her Grandad is first thrown together and eventually torn apart.
