Growing up is learning

Growing up is intriguing

Growing up is moving and meeting

Growing up is confusing

Growing up is making decisions

Growing up is a little bit scary

Growing up is letting go, choosing my own path

Growing up is becoming my own person

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to stay a child forever? Or were you, are you, desperate for adulthood?

What would it feel like to have a choice?

The night before her 14th birthday Mojisola receives a letter inviting her to investigate this choice. Join her as she goes on a journey to navigate whether to grow up or stay young.


Grow Up! will be Beyond Face Youth Company’s second full production following the success of their musical Where’s Abi? By Titilola Dawudu in 2017. Beyond Face Youth Company were invited by Company Three to join them, Mortal Fools and Prime Theatre to use the same starting point to create a full length play. The source was the words ‘Grow Up’. Teenagers are told to do this all the time, but are rarely given any space to do so – what do they think of this and how do they feel about growing up in the world?
