Boys by Ella Hickson

Directed by Daniel Goldman

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.

This amateur production of Boys is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.

Rabbit by Nina Raine

A fiercely funny play about what it's like to be a young woman living, working, drinking, loving and having sex in the 21st century.

It's Bella's 29th birthday. Friends and former lovers meet for a drink to celebrate. But as the Bloody Marys flow, the bar soon becomes a battlefield.

Road by Jim Cartwright

Directed by Michelle Chadwick

Under the guidance of the rum-soaked wideboy Scullery, we are taken on an evening's tour of a scruffy, depressed road in a small Lancashire town. Moving from street corner to living room, from bedroom to kitchen, we meet the young, middle-aged, and old inhabitants, glimpsing their socially and emotionally wretched lives, in this sharp, sad, funny, and angry play.

This amateur production of Road is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
