Lump Boy Logan (The Wire)
  • Lump Boy Logan (The Wire)

  • Andrew and his dad are living with Auntie Jeanette, who cooks culinary delights such as date and Wensleydale pie, mutton casserole, and veal and paprika stroganoff. But the most disturbing thing for Andrew is his acne. It can hurt like crazy and beat like a drum, red and swollen. When he gets upset the spots start shouting at him, willing him to cut them out, or kill 'evil Auntie Jeanette'. At school he gets bullied, and smeared with chocolate cake to cover his red blotchy face. People laugh and jeer, but worse still, Andrew can hear his spots shouting and screaming and laughing at him too. The spots recurrently come alive to torment him and completely obsess him - and when Auntie Jeanette tells his father he's been skiving school, Andrew turns on his aunt and we discover just how much he is projecting his hurt, grief and anger onto her... Written by Chris Wilson and directed by Pauline Harris. Starring William Rush as Andrew.
