Four boys face the tricky transition to adulthood in Ella Hickson’s riot of a play.
The Class of 2011 are about to graduate and Benny, Mack, Timp and Cam are due out of their flat. Stepping into a world that doesn’t want them, these boys start to wonder whether there’s any point in getting any older. How will they find the fight to make it as adults?
Before all that they’re going to have one hell of a party. It’s hot and there’ll be girls. Predict a riot.
Ella Hickson’s play Boys was first performed at the HighTide Festival, Halesworth, Suffolk, in May 2012, before transferring to the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, and Soho Theatre, London.
