BASED ON THE NOVEL BY ÉRIC-EMMANUEL SCHMITT
ADAPTED FOR THE STAGE BY BRYONY LAVERY
Oscar is 10. He lives in a children’s hospital. It’s a frantic, magnificent and scary place, and he feels very much alone. Granny Rose is old. She’s a hospital volunteer and knows a lot about wrestling. And she doesn’t mind telling the truth about grown-up stuff.
With little time and big questions, Oscar embarks on a fast-forward adventure through life and all of the moves it has to throw at him — first love,
responsibility and kissing with tongues.
Based on Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt’s internationally acclaimed novel, this magical new play by Bryony Lavery reminds us to live every day like it’s the last.
