"The Almeida's new production is the kind of thing to turn first-timers on to theatre forever" Radio Times
At a bus stop.
Master of observation, Leo Butler casts a sharp eye over contemporary London and picks out someone for us to follow. Someone easily missed amongst the crowd.
Following last year's groundbreaking production of Game, the innovative director-designer team Sacha Wares and Miriam Buether return to the Almeida to bring this ambitious exploration of austerity-era London to life. They are joined by an award-winning creative team and an exciting young company of actors.
Written by Leo Butler, who has quietly established himself as one of the UK's most talented political playwrights, Boy is an important new play about coming of age in 21st-century London
"About as high-concept as mainstream theatre gets. Vivid…exhilarating"
Time Out on Game
"Butler's outstanding new play.. Is a timely, savagely brilliant epitaph for the New Labour decade."
