After stunning London and New York audiences, Girls & Boys makes its long-awaited Australian premiere at MTC. Directed by Helpmann Award winner Kate Champion (Never Did Me Any Harm), Nikki Shiels (Home, I'm Darling) brings Melbourne this extraordinary one-woman show 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.
