Laundry Boy

Martin’s time has come to move on from dependence to independence. His journey is both terrifying and exciting as he falls in love, suffers loss and gains a glimpse of who he could be.

Everything was ticking along as normal for Laundry Boy, Martin - or so he thought - when suddenly he was spun into making some life-changing choices.

  • Fluff and fold or college?
  • Love or just friends?
  • Marmite or jam?

Will he be able to choose for himself? Or have the decisions made for him? Follow Martin in this sometimes painful yet heart-warming story as he whirls from boy to man.

The production is in spoken English, BSL and has integrated audio description.

Artistic Vision

We have developed a multi-accessible style of performance which is distinct and exciting.

Founder Members

In the late 90s a group of artists started to experiment with different ways of working in Theatre.


Our board members bring a range of experiences and points of view to what we do.


Face Front was begun by artists who were all committed to working inclusively within their particular art form.
