When We Grow Up We'll Be Old is part fictional documentary and part fantastical adventure achieved using the processes of live film making, as theatre.

Set in the Barnstaple Pannier Market, the narrative follows the adventures two 15 year-old boys and their fantasy world counter parts from the perspectives of their 25 year-old selves and the ‘God’ like fantasy narrator. The adventure ends in a game-like structure which decides the fate of the characters' friendship much to the consternation of their 25 year-old selves for whom their very existence is brought into question.

When We Grow Up We'll Be Old has been generously supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
