Summary

Shirley is a teenage boy with a girl’s name, growing up in suburbia and feeling like the weirdest kid in the school. Nothing makes much sense to him, and his heart belongs to a classmate who barely knows he exists. Wound Man is an unconventional superhero, sprung from the pages of a medieval medical textbook, with an alarming assortment of weapons sticking out from every part of his body. Wound Man has just moved into a house on Shirley’s street – and he happens to have a vacancy for a teenage sidekick... A funny and touching story by Chris Goode about two unlikely friends and the adventures they share.‘A simple, unaffected piece of storytelling… There is something so unguarded, almost childlike, about this show that you can't help but fall in love with it’ 4 stars – Guardian

‘told with humour and bags of charm… The Adventures of Wound Man and Shirley tells a familiar tale in a refreshing and imaginative way to leave us amused and moved.’ 4 stars – What’s On Stage
