Love, life and masculinity meet head-on in this poignant, funny and impassioned portrayal of becoming a man and the responsibility that comes with it.

When the euphoric highs of teenage life in south London collide with his mum’s terminal illness, all Rayleigh wants to do is watch anime in his pants and eat indomie.

Love, life and masculinity meet head-on as Rayleigh tries to find his feet, torn between the new girl in his life and being there for his mum, while trying not to make the same mistakes as his dad.

With Guyanese folk stories, grime, roti and raucous energy, Big Foot is a funny and impassioned portrayal of becoming a man and the responsibility that comes with it.

    “Phillip’s larger than life personality stamped across the stage, there is a gentle yet persuasive message about the responsibilities of becoming a man.”

    The Stage

      “Barnes Phillips gives a winning performance as Raleigh, never more so than when asking our help to choose his baby son’s name. It makes an emotional ending, both as father and son, all the more potent.”

      What's On Stage

        “it’s got guts and heart; it’s emotional and mature”

        Culture by night

          “There are laughs – lots of them – but other moments are simply heart stopping”

          The Tug

            “Vivacious, cool; and verging on brilliant.”
