Gangsta Baby

A dive into Hastings, being born into criminal class, sex work, & drugs

This show is part of the Platform Festival. Explore the full season & find out more here!

Hastings, for rent boy Junior & his trans half-bro Pete, is home.

A quiet working class town in Sussex, with the odd street brawl or two, where the views are epic but water is brown. People are resilient & ambitious, but opportunity or anything to do is far away. Then Junior Dad Senior pops back up out of the blue. Why is he here? Where has he been? Why does he want his son back? Why now?

Gangster Baby is a dive into the world of, sex work, drugs, internalised homophobia, Hastings neglect, betrayal & desperate need for love in the criminal classes.
