Matthew and Kylie and Me
Squad grad Matthew Ingram has been working with theatre company Rocket Box on their digital season. Every Monday, Rocket Box have been releasing new content ranging from radio plays to spoken word poetry shorts. Matthew’s recently released play, Kylie & Me, is a short play about idols and growing up queer in a working-class world.

But everything’s not quite as it seems – because as Jamie starts to talk more and more, we learn more about the world that he’s growing up in and the obstacles that he faces every day.
