Liverpool, 1989. Greg is thirteen. He has just started secondary school. He earns pocket money sweeping up hair in a barbers. Girls are aliens. Liverpool FC are everything.

Shedinburgh 2021. Tom has an extraordinary story to tell you.

Steven Atkinson, director of the Fringe First winning Lidless,  directs James Cooney (Island, National Theatre) in a vibrant coming-of-age story about becoming a man through adventures both big and small. It is about a notorious city; Liverpool. How the outside world views it and how it views the outside world.

Bottleneck played at Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh Festival, and Soho Theatre before going on a National tour ending at HighTide Festival Theatre.

Content Warning: Disaster, rape

Performed by James Cooney
