The F Word

by Conor Hunt

27 Jan 2021-30 Jan 2021

“They've given me six weeks. Like the summer holidays. Except I won't be going back after this one. Six weeks until the end... and we're gonna f*cking make the most of it.”

Seventeen-year-old Jacob and Tommy are ordinary teenage boys with an ordinary friendship, who happen to find themselves in a rather extraordinary situation. Why? Because Jacob is dying. A comedy drama exploring the wonder of teenage friendship and youthful positivity, even when the odds are set against you. This isn't a story about death. It's a story about life, friendship and a funeral.

Following the overwhelming success of its ‘Women Centre Stage’ production last October, Progress Theatre will once again illuminate the Zoom stage to the growing anticipation of the Reading and Berkshire community. ‘The F Word’ by Conor Hunt, was originally produced for Edinburgh Fringe 2017, and will be Progress Theatre’s first show for 2021.
