Matey Boy

Matey Boy

A Dramatic Poem by Kevin Fegan

Illustrated by John Fox

A young shipyard worker is trapped in the steel skin of a Trident Submarine. Swollen in panic, he realises what he has become...

An epic poem, written and performed by Kevin Fegan, who 'won't apologise for poetry' and on this showing has no need - his verse is as tough, topical and streetwise as any disco rap.

"Matey Boy reflects with a candour that must have hurt the tension between machismo and sensitivity - vividly imagined in the crash helmet to protect his head when he knows the real risks are inside it."
