if I was gold almighty himself, and destroyed this first attempt at life. what would my second version be? . . . a dead end of endless possibility. A pedlar boy wakes up in a field somewhere in London, surrounded by the remnants of the night before. With no memory of how he has come to be there, he knows he must go back to the start in order to understand it all. His attempts to retrace events from the previous days lead him on a haunting journey where everything comes into question: his life, his world, his future. peddling is Harry Melling's remarkable debut play following a day in the life of a door-to-door salesman as he battles difficult questions and attempts to come to terms with the resulting truths. peddling received its world premiere at Hightide Festival on 10 April 2014, performed by Harry Melling, before transferring to 59E59 Theatre, NY, for a four-week run. It was revived in 2015 by HighTide at the Arcola Theatre, London.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Takes us on a journey with a young offender door-to-door selling on a day release scheme. The hopping geography of the piece, in which the actor's feet seem to remember the dusty London streets, is a joy to watch. Leaping from place to place the boy's memories flow free, unlocking a true sense of self and eventually breaking the walls that bind him. * Daily Telegraph *
Feels like the intersection of Beckett and Albee . . . A powerful and delicately calibrated performance * New York Times (Critics' Choice) *
