Mikey and Addie

Created Andy Manley, Rob Evans and Macrobert Arts Centre

It's hard to tell when your life will change. Hard to spot that moment, that day where you wake up normal, but end up falling far from everything you've ever known. Spinning into nothingness. Today is that day.

Mikey is 10. A sunny boy. He lives alone with his mum. Mikey's mum has a secret. It is not well kept. Everyone knows it. Everyone except for Mikey. Addie is a good girl. She doesn't tell lies. Her father makes sure of that. Addie tells the truth. It's what you have to do. Isn't it?

Mikey and Addie is a highly visual piece of storytelling that asks how do you work out who you are when everything around you is changing.
