EHE8: Boys

Ella Hickson

“What if the look in some old guy’s face told you that being young is as good as it ever gets”

Uni is over. The grades are in. And there’s just time for one last act of irresponsibility. On their last night as students, four lads have to face their future, so a drug-fuelled rager seems wholly appropriate. But with swelling social unrest leaking into the flat from the streets below, will the boys sink, or swim?
This arrestingly dark comedy, from one of Britain’s most exciting new playwrights, offers an intense insight into youth mentality today.

Starring Will Merrick (Skins, Richard Curtis’ About Time) and Freya Mavor (Skins, The White Queen)
