Two Plays

Stacy / Fanny and Faggot $21.81 ex GST
$23.99 inc GST
The sole protagonist, Rob, finds life confusing in a world of unwritten rules. If there’s no one around to tell him right from wrong, except for a copy of FHM and a call-centre supervisor, he just has to guess. Sometimes he gets his guesses very wrong...

'A pin-sharp, brilliant piece of work.' Time Out, Critics’ Choice

Fanny and Faggot 
Presents two distinct moments in the life of Mary Bell, who was convicted of the murders of two boys—aged four and three—when she was just ten years old.  Jack Thorne’s ambitious and highly theatrical drama presents a distrubing, funny, and troubled world. Using documentation from the court case in 1968 and the imagined events of her escape in 1978, Fanny and Faggot explores Mary’s journey to the brink of horror and her tentative steps back into ‘normal life’.

The two parts, Two Little Boys and Superstar, can be performed together or separately. 

'A darkly gripping achievement, probing the most horrifying extremes of human behaviour with compassion and a rigorous moral and intellectual curiosity.'  The Times

Cast : Stacy - 1M / Fanny & Faggot - 2F (Two Little Boys) ; 2M, 2F (Superstar)
