“You’re a market stall Gucci handbag. And I’m having more than that, more than you.”

“We ain’t just something that you can quit, you tit.”

Junk finds his rock bottom on top of the world in a way that only a man who’s had everything and nothing can understand. A visceral odyssey from flying fists in Tyneside to hard sales in Dubai via elephant rides and the elusive search for the perfect pocket squares.

This is Ric Renton’s true story of a boy who burned down the village to feel its warmth and the man who emerged asking how to put the fire out.

This blazing debut play with music was developed by Synergy Theatre Project and director Chris White and will also tour to prisons.

Ric Renton is an actor and writer from Newcastle upon Tyne. His second play Seven Eight Six is currently in development.

Director Chris White’s production of Gutted at Omnibus played to sold out houses in October 2019. Other productions of new work include the Offienominated Booby’s Bay and Scenes from 68 Years.


Previous Praise:

“Fantastic acting, brilliantly inventive lighting and proper laugh out loud moments.” The Irish Post on Gutted
