This wee’un reminds me of you at his age Sharron – he’s got the devil dancin’ in his eyes.
Jamie’s 15 and he lives in Rotherham with his mum. Since Granda Frank died she’s stopped coming out of her room and each time Jamie sees her she’s different – one day like a child, the next like a monster; sometimes the awesome mum he’s always known.
Left to his own devices he’s spending more and more time online and it’s BRILLIANT. Rotherham is a million miles behind him as he soars through a digital realm of pixels, kilobits and the occasional adult chatroom. He doesn’t understand everything he reads (what a BDSM Chem-Monkey is he has no idea) but it’s okay – here he’s part of something, and there’s people to talk to.
But there’s a wee devil dancing in Jamie’s eyes, and he’s not sure what it might tell him to do.
Combining soulful original songs with live animation and theatre, The Devil Danced in Our Eyes is a feast for the eyes and the ears, exploring sexuality, class and the effects of mental illness in a family.
