First Staged:
Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2022

Ebook £4.99£3.99

A five-star hit at the Edinburgh Fringe, Joe Sellman-Leava's play Fanboy is a love-hate letter to pop culture and nostalgia.

It's the story of a thirty-something, self-confessed nerd – obsessed with Star Wars and Nintendo – asking why his generation can't let go of their childhoods.

Fanboy had a successful run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022 followed by a short regional tour and a week at Soho Theatre in November 2022. It was selected for VAULT Festival 2023.

Also available in the volume Plays from VAULT 6.
