Little Man is a love letter to the 90s rainbow overalled, Spice Girls loving queer kids. It’s a show about growing up. Loving and losing the ones you love. It’s about awkward bowl haircuts, emo fringes and adolescence. The music that makes you, and the people that are there from A to Z. With original songs by BJ Shaw plus a couple of 90s throwbacks.
Written and Created by BJ Shaw
Directed by Catherine Campbell
