Poppy is eleven and has attitude. When she finds herself living with her cantankerous grandfather, a man she neither likes nor loves all hell breaks loose. Something of a hermit; a man living in the past who sees very little good in anything or anybody, her Grandad is suddenly and unexpectedly confronted by a tornado of energy who can’t sit still and asks too many questions.
Grow up Grandad, is an intergenerational story that deals with love and loss, hope and sadness, as the relationship between Poppy and her Grandad is thrust together and torn apart.
Award winning writer and Hull Truck favourite Gordon Steel – Like a Virgin, Studs, Dead Fish, A Kick in the Baubles has written for the BBC, Channel 4, Carlton Television and LWT.
‘Just over two hours of emotional, poignant, moving, touching, heartbreaking, heartwarming, soul-stirring, uplifting drama’
