Northern Knights Productions presents: Our Kid
This hard hitting drama set in Salford & Manchester focuses
on the relationship of two brothers, but is told exclusively
from the perspective of one. Exploring the theme of revenge,
it poses the question; can you forgive and forget?
Framed by a signature Manchester soundtrack with visual and written references to both cities, ‘Our
Kid’ is a one-man show grounded in the gritty working class culture which is still alive and kicking in
Salford & Manchester. Our Kid explores domestic abuse, toxic masculinity and what leads youths to
gang life. Lead performer Taran Knight brings his own firsthand experience of gang culture and life to
the role, and wrote the show based on his own experiences. Our Kid’s goal is to raise awareness, and
to attract a new audience into the theatre. Working class stories, for Working Class people.
After a successful run at the Greater Manchester Fringe, and being nominated for ‘Best Drama’, ‘Best
New Writing’ & ‘Best Actor’ for lead performer Taran Knight, Our Kid returns for a UK tour running
until 2020 and leading towards the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
