Big Kids is a storytelling show about four Norfolk teenagers who want to stay kids forever. Then one of them loses their single parent, two of them get pregnant and the other starts to transition.

The play is an exploration of growing up, queer teenage life in coastal Norfolk and how we all perform adulthood.
