“Never been camping before. None of us have, but how hard can it be?”

Luke, Zia and Tommy have known each other for forever. With Luke about to leave for university it’s time for one last adventure together. Armed with Zia’s mix CD and a bag of Brummie pride, they set off to conquer Snowdon. But when their jaunt takes an unexpected turn they are forced to face up to the reality of why they needed the trip in the first place.

Back Down is the highly-anticipated first play by Birmingham-born Steven Camden, also known as the award-winning spoken word artist, Polarbear. Steven has crafted a must-see coming-of-age story that is both insightful and incredibly funny.

“Birmingham should certainly be proud of Camden for celebrating this great city within a beautiful story that all can relate to”
