‘To bronco a swing you stand on it, worky up to the bumps, level with the bar, kick the swing over your head and jump beneath it.’ Douglas Maxwell
It’s summer and school’s out. Five lads act out their dreams and fears in their local playground in Scotland. Their game, known as ‘broncoing’, is fast and dangerous. Broncoing is a sign of manhood – which Decky and his friends all impatiently await. Little do they know how suddenly and abruptly it will be forced upon them this summer…
“A precious piece of theatre that captures all the fragility of childhood.” The Guardian
Multi award-winning Scottish company Grid Iron first toured this boisterous outdoor production in 2000 and again in 2001 in co-production with The Almeida Theatre, London. A theatrical event unlike any other, and performed by eight actors who are all trained acrobats, this remount celebrates the tenth anniversary of the original Scotsman Fringe First and Stage Award winning production.
A powerful and vivid tale of childhood innocence and the perilous passage into adulthood.
”Utterly convincing and utterly brilliant – I’d run away and join Grid Iron tomorrow.” The Irish Times
