All Growed Up, follows Northern Ireland writer Tony Macaulay’s internationally acclaimed memoirs Paperboy and Breadboy, as the third in the series. It tells Tony’s story as he leaves the Shankill for life as a student in Coleraine, where he discovers true love, socialism and screen tests. Touching, funny and nostalgic, All Growed Up will delight Tony’s many fans. It’s the book in which the retired paperboy finally grows up.

It’s Belfast, 1982, and a seventeen-year-old boy wearing Hai Karate aftershave has an appointment with destiny. He is a real man now, so he is, and shaving twice a week. To follow his successful career as a breadboy, he aims to go where few people from the upper Shankill have boldly gone before: to University.

An exclusive screening of this summer’s performance at the Lyric Theatre Belfast, with a Q&A with the author Tony Macaulay afterwards.

What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie?

Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time.

Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife, Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingenue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime.

Death by design is more than homage – it’s a new classic.
