THE‘BOYS’ ARE BACK IN TOWN

Coming to a theatre near you…


It's a matter of days before Benny, Mack, Timp and Cam have to move out of their student flat. The boys find mess piling up around them as they step out into an unwelcoming world. They start to wonder if there's any point in getting older. Before that though, there's going to be one hell of a party.

It's hot. There'll be girls. Predict a riot.

Simultaneously funny, tragic and extremely real, the play offers a genuine and painful view of the challenges faced by those who refuse to grow up.

Following a successful run in Durham, Lion Theatre Company and Fourth Wall Theatre are taking their production of ‘Boys’ by Ella Hickson on a UK tour…

'Hilarious and devastating' – The Bubble ★★★★★

'A stunning faithfulness to reality' – Palatinate Review ★★★★

“If you are a student, particularly the type more likely to spend an evening watching Fresh Meat than heading to the theatre, make an exception and see this show- you will not regret it” – DST First Night ★★★★★
