UK's Myrtle Theatre Company present Up Down Boy as part of the Capital E National Arts Festival 2011.

Matty is off to college in an hour – and he’s left it to mum to pack his suitcase. She won’t miss the slamming doors, the queue for the bathroom and the phone bills. But Matty is no ordinary teenager. Will his Mum cope without him? Will he cope with the challenges that lie ahead? And how will they fit the life-size model of Buffy the Vampire Slayer into the back of the car? Myrtle Theatre Company received rave reviews for this touching play inspired by the extraordinary life story of a boy with Down syndrome and his mother’s humorous and idiosyncratic perspective on bringing him up.

“The whole production makes for an emotional but never sentimental picture of an unusual but strangely familiar relationship. A truly entertaining and uplifting story. 9/10.” -Bristol Evening Post
