Astrid Wentworth is a City trader, a ruthless player in a man's world. If there is a special hell for women who don't help each other, Astrid’s got the top table reserved and a Martini waiting.

But, when the young and ambitious Priya applies for a junior position on the trading floor, Astrid recognises something in her and decides to give her a go. After all, what’s gender got to do with it?

Featuring an all-female cast and cabaret music, Melissa Bubnic's play Boys Will Be Boys received its European premiere at Bush Hall, London, in 2016, in an exhilarating co-production between Headlong and the Bush Theatre.

‘I'm no friend to the sisterhood. I'm basically a man who sits to pee.’

Press Quotes

'A rude, raucous, song-filled satire that aims some well-directed blows at the macho swagger and sexual brutality of the male-dominated City of London'

Guardian

'A brilliantly raucous satire of banking life… there's a radical, exhilaratingly feminist energy to the spectacle of watching dragged-up women of all ages playing sleazy bankers and brokers running riot'

Time Out

'Astringent and furiously funny'
