A play about superheroes, grief and shopping trolleys.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold Trolley Boy!

Riding these broken streets, dodging stones and swerving dog shit in his superfast Asda trolley.

Brave, fearless Trolley Boy brings hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless and safety to the… not very safe.

Trolley Boy has emerged like a phoenix from the ashes. He sees, he hears: despair in the bungalows, panic in the flats.

But fear not. Trolley Boy fights for justice.

Things haven’t been great for 14-year old Colin. 1992 was already a pretty crap year. But when tragedy strikes and the forces of darkness move in there’s only one thing left to do: become a superhero.

Set in Washington, Tyne and Wear, in the early 90s, Trolley Boy is the story of a teenage boy trying to come to terms with loss.


Alphabetti Theatre bring Trolley Boy to the stage, a script developed over 2 years through our Write Longer Literary Scheme. It was first shown as a script-in-hand performance in 2016. Supported by Arts Council England.
