Ella Hickson’s critically acclaimed dark comedy about suicide, Boys, comes to the LOST Theatre,Stockwell, this November. This new revival is directed by James Thacker, new associate director,following his full-length directorial debut, Mojo by Jez Butterworth, at LOST in 2015. The cast includes Ross Kernahan, Alex Bird, Gabrielle Nellis-Pain, Luke Farrugia, Henry Bauckham, and Jenna Fincken
On an unusually hot summer’s night, Benny and his band of compatriots – a punk, a prodigy and a poet – drink to the end of an era. With revolution and resolutions the order of the day, and time quickly running out, Benny just wants to fix everyone’s problems – and ignore his own demons at all costs. Amidst a sanitation strike in Edinburgh, the garbage keeps mounting, but there is more than the smell of rotting rubbish hanging in the air. Nostalgia soon turns to soul-searching and division as everyone’s dirty laundry is aired one last time.
Boys debuted in 2010 at the Soho Theatre, produced by Headlong. Her current play Oil premiered at Almeida in October 2016.
Boys is on at LOST Theatre between November 23rd 2016 – November 26th 2016
