Mikey is 10. A sunny boy.  He lives alone with his mum.  Mikey’s mum has a secret.  It is not well kept.  Everyone knows it.  Everyone except for Mikey.

Addie is a good girl.  She doesn’t tell lies.  Her father makes sure of that.  Addie tells the truth.  It’s what you have to do.  Isn’t it?

Created by Andy Manley and Robert Alan Evans, with design by Shona Reppe and sound by Danny Krass, Mikey and Addie was originally commissioned by the London 2012 Festival and supported through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund. It played as part of the Made in Scotland showcase at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

“Charmingly performed and beautifully designed, it is a bittersweet story about coming to terms with the loss of childhood innocence” Mark Fisher, The Guardian
“…irresistible humour as well as a perceptive understanding of the issues and choices that are such a confusing part of growing up” Mary Brennan, The Herald
