going house to house,
door to door –
knock knocking –
professional doorstep hopping,
hoping that someone might show an interest.

The earth grumbles. Growling. Rising. The city street-lamps flicker up. We're in a field somewhere in London. A pedlar boy awakes lying on the grass, in his hand a firework. How did he get here? To answer that question he must venture back to the very start via the doorsteps of privileged London and the cracks that swallow thousands of young Londoners every year.

Arcola [Fringe,Off West End]

“A raw portrait of homelessness... The script has a volatile poetry... A memorable writing debut. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Nothing... has quite prepared us for this gloriously intense one-man show, which marks the 24-year-old’s debut as a playwright. ”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)

“Melling has written the play himself as a cockney rhyming rap that’s also strongly imagistic, subtle and moving. ”

Patrick Marmion (Time Out, Daily Mail)

“It’s never less than a handsome production... and Melling delivers his script with shiv-sharp, vibrating intensity. ”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“Grounded in a grimy, desperate urban London, it aims far higher with its symbolic imagery. ”

Holly Williams (What's On Stage, Time Out, Independent)
