“Disarmingly charming. The stage is awash not with testosterone but something more unexpected: Love” 
Lyn Gardner, StageDoor

“Essential viewing for every boy”
Theatre Weekly

Bursting with physical energy, tender reflection and playful improvisation, this award-winning show returns to London by popular demand. Laugh, celebrate and listen as these boys dive headfirst into their experiences of being young men of colour.

Weaving slick choreography and dialogue with a soundtrack of contemporary beats, this award-winning show celebrates male tenderness, silliness, vulnerability and community. Joyful, electric, unscripted and occasionally raw but always tender. BOYS was created by this 10-strong company to unravel preconceptions and uncover the endless possibilities of masculinity.

The PappyShow is an ensemble theatre company that creates space for people to dance, play and celebrate their authentic voices. BOYS was the winner of the Origins Outstanding New Work Award at the VAULT Festival.
