Matty is off to college in an hour and he’s left it to mum to pack his suitcase!  She won’t miss the slamming doors, the queue for the bathroom and the phone bills.  But Matty is no ordinary teenager.  Will his mum cope without him?  Will he cope with the challenges that lie ahead?

This honest and uplifting play was inspired by the extraordinary life story of a boy with Down’s syndrome, and his mother’s humorous and idiosyncratic perspective on bringing him up.

In the unique production, the gifted and charismatic Nathan Bessell plays the central character Matty, drawing on his own life experiences.
