Event Notes

× Scottee grew up around mould, mice and second hand clothes. After a chance meeting with some posh kids, his Mum teaching him to talk proper and him successfully persuading his parents to take him off free school meals Scottee knew he didn’t want to be working class. Scottee uncovers what it is to be embarrassed about where you’re from, how you can pretend to be richer than you are and explores why we all get a thrill from watching how the other half live.

This is a show for the middle class, those who didn’t grow up in poverty.

Class isn't a show for those processing issues around domestic violence, food addiction and the effects of growing up in poverty. ★★★★★ “A brilliant, angry, damaged, brutal, savagely funny reflection on what it means growing up working-class”
- Attitude ★★★★ “Scottee creates theatres of discomfort… If you’re middle class, you might prefer to avoid a situation in which you’ll be caricatured, patronised or judged; not everyone, of course, has that luxury.”
- The Scotsman
