I'll never forget that doctor. "Your son - he's got Down's syndrome"

We thought, what the hell is that? He must have seen the look on our faces.

He said, "Mongol".

Matty is off to college in an hour - and he's left it to Mum to pack his suitcase. She won't miss the slamming doors, the queue for the bathroom and the phone bills. But Matty is no ordinary teenager. Will his Mum cope without him? Will he cope with the challenges that lie ahead? And how will they fit the life-size model of Buffy the Vampire Slayer into the back of the car?

Myrtle, Bristol's own unique and nationally renowned theatre company, returns to the Tobacco Factory with Up Down Boy by local writer Sue Shields. This honest, funny, touching and uplifting play combines drama, music, dance and animation.

Up Down Boy's creative team includes Nathan Bessell, Michelle Gaskell, Catherine Johnson, Sam Morrison, John O'Hara, Michael Straun, Heather Williams and Aardman Animation.

"The whole production makes for an emotional but never sentimental picture of an unusual but
strangely familiar relationship. A truly entertaining and uplifting story" 9/10 Bristol Evening Post
