Countryboy's Struggle

Maxwell Golden

Developed at Contact during 2011 Countryboy's Struggle was the debut solo show from writer and performer, Maxwell Golden.

Michael (Golden) is a rap star, or least he is when he dreams, but growing up in rural Cornwall he's never had a chance to connect to his community. One day, after a fight with his father, he sets off to London to become an MC...

A fast, funny and honest story of a quest for a sense of belonging Countryboy's Struggle features over 40 characters, all delivered by Maxwell in a tour-de-force performance.

Directed by Baba Israel.

Countryboy's Struggle was supported by Contact; Take Art, Somerset and Beaford Arts, Devon.
