ABOUT THE SHOW
Girls & Boys is an extraordinary one-woman show which has stunned audiences in London and New York. Directed by Helpmann Award-winner Kate Champion (Never Did Me Any Harm), Nikki Shiels (Home, I’m Darling) brings Melbourne this powerful production that promises to have you in fits of laughter before hitting home with an impact that will leave you reeling.
A smart, witty woman. A funny, passionate man. They meet, fall in love, get married, start a family. So far, so unremarkable. Their life together accumulates its regular successes and disappointments, its many universal touchpoints, until it takes an unexpected turn all too shocking, and all too common.
A devastatingly astute and timely new work from the Tony Award-winning British playwright Dennis Kelly (Matilda: The Musical), Girls & Boys is an undeniable tour de force that will stay with you long after the curtains close. This is theatre at its most raw, and most affecting.
