About Shook

Winner of the 2019 Papatango New Writing Prize from 1,406 entries, Shook transfers to Trafalgar Studios for four weeks in April 2020. A tender and honest examination of the young men shut away in society, Shook looks at the impact of the criminal justice system on young people.

WHO'S IN IT?: SHOOK CAST

The cast of Shook is completed by Josef Davies as Jonjo, Josh Finan as Cain, Ivan Oyik as Riad and Andrea Hall as Grace, who reprise their roles from performances at Southwark Playhouse.

What's the story?

Instead of doing their GCSEs, Cain, Riyad and Jonjo got sentenced. Now they're locked up in a young offenders' institution, they spend their days trading sweets and killing time until they're released. From different walks of life, they all share one common thing - they're all awaiting fatherhood. It's up to Grace, who must turn these teenagers into parents, but will the trio of troublesome teenagers be able to realise their ways and grow up quickly enough to escape the system?
