A grime-theatre mash-up. Too black for my white friends, but too white for my Black friends. Growing up mixed race in Newport, I fell into a cloud of grey. Absent Black father, ducking the police, working out what it means to be a man. I was struggling to find my place in the world and in danger of spiralling out of control. Then one moment changed my life. Created from grime culture and inspired by Dizzee Rascal, Wiley, Skepta and Kano, The Making of a Monster is Connor's story. Reviews: "Connor Allen's startling grime-theatre mash-up is as emotionally raw as it is playful and imaginative" - The Stage "Honest...funny and tender" - South Wales Life "Astoundingly raw" - Wales Theatre Review "One of the best things I've watched all year" - Aleighcia Scott, singer "Connor is not only annoyingly talented. He is the thing that most writers try and fail to be: Absolutely genuine." - Bryony Kimmings, performance artist "Connor Allen is one of the most generous, gracious souls I've ever been lucky enough to meet. The story of how he came through tough times to become the man he is today will be an inspiration to ever" - Gary Owen, writer
