The Olive Boy

The Olive Boy

Duration: 75 mins


After the sudden death of his mother, a grieving yet quintessentially teenage boy is forced to change schools and move in with his, until that point, absent father. In a hopeless attempt to stay sane, he decides that the only way to move forward is to pursue the chances of him finally getting a real girlfriend. Like most things in his life, it does not go to plan.

A show full of grief, hope, and a great deal of olives. Based on Ollie Maddigan’s real life story, “The Olive Boy" is a crude, compelling comedy that will leave audiences deciding whether to laugh or cry. Following its month-long SELL OUT run at the Edinburgh Fringe, The “brilliant & thought provoking” Olive Boy tours the UK this Spring.
