Event Navigation

You’re 15 years old, struggling through school and coming to terms with the early stages of adolescence. Things are tricky when you’re growing up. You get dealt yet another devastating blow. But this time, it’s worse. Your mum’s passed away.

Now what?

Based on Ollie Maddigan’s real life story, “The Olive Boy” is a crude but compelling comedy written and performed by Ollie Maddigan himself. Initially introduced at the Hope Theatre in 2021, the show quickly gained attention during its three-night run as part of the Camden Fringe and then in 2022 as part of its month-long sell out run at The Edinburgh Fringe. Renowned for its gripping narrative and Ollie’s remarkable onstage presence, “The Olive Boy” has received praise from both theatre-goers and critics.
