Where the Mangrove Grows
Twelve year-old Shaun just can't work it out. Why hasn't his Mum come to visit? Why has his care-worker taken away his picture book? And who is the man at the window calling him away? With a bed for a boat and a piece of skirting board for an oar, Shaun sets off for mangroves in this darkly enchanting yet highly contentious tale of a lost boy's transformation. Contains themes that some audience members may find distressing.
