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.

'marvellous... a play that both powerfully captures the mood of a generation and addresses permanent truths with exhilarating flair'

- Independent

'will leave you with laughter lines'

- Time Out

'Ella Hickson is one of the hottest young writers around and in Boys shows flashes of brilliance'

- British Theatre Guide

'heartfelt directness of writing that taps into a generation torn between action and inertia'

- Guardian
