The first rule of The Cold Record is…

… you don’t talk about The Cold Record.

Well, you can talk about it but you can’t reveal what happens.

So, what do we already know?

A secret location. There will be punk music. There will be a mixtape. We meet a 12-year-old boy who is in love with the school nurse. He’s going for a record number of sick days off school.

It’s fun and relaxed, you will have a smile on your face and you will learn something about a stranger.

Whilst the story is told at breakneck speed, the subtext creeps up on you and you realise you are more invested than at first it seemed.

You don’t need to be a fan of punk music to enjoy this show, just have an appreciation of music and the joy it brings.

This is a story about relationships – with friends, family and first love.

Your heart might break a little. 4/5 stars
