Boys' Life

Boys' Life: A show with Balls

If you’re looking to see a show with balls Boys’ Life is definitely it.

The play follows the drunken, nihilistic excesses of three American youths through their quest to embrace responsibility, seek partnership and come to a realisation of their place in the world. 

Boys’ Life reminds the audience of their journey from adolescent confused flirtation to ultimate attempts to dignify a life.

It’s about the relationship of three urban guys who essentially refuse to grow up.

The Outfit Theatre Company production, based on Howard Korder’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play, portrays the sexual politics and attitudes of 1980s America.
