"She doesn't feel like my mum. She doesn't do things mum's do. .."
Nottingham - 1998. Nineteen year-old Mark is living a life he never signed up to caring for his mum and her baby. He's pining for a past of Panda Pops, eggy bread and Brian Clough. Mark knows he has to do something drastic. But will he make the chilling choice that will change things forever?
An achingly honest portrayal of a boy struggling to find his place in a world that doesn't want him. Bones will break your heart, spit you out and then make you wonder why you cared in the first place.
There will be a post-show discussion about Bones after the performance.
