About Our Boys

Cian Barry, Jolyon Coy, Arthur Darvill, Laurence Fox, Matthew Lewis and Lewis Reeves star in the new production of Our Boys by Jonathan Lewis at the Duchess Theatre.

Based on the author's own army experience, Our Boys is both searingly honest and explosively funny. Five young soldiers are killing nothing but time as they recover from injuries incurred in the line of duty. Suddenly, their daily routine of TV, lonely hearts ads and banter is shattered by the arrival of a young officer.

The camaraderie of this unlikely band of brothers is soon jeopardised by a dangerous incident and an act of betrayal. With charges of misconduct looming, accusations fly - and the fighting really starts. Fired by anger at the neglect of our wounded heroes, Our Boys remains as relevant now as was in 1993.

Our Boys won the Best New Play award in the 1993 Writers’ Guild Fringe Awards, and this first West End production will be directed by David Grindley. In addition to the award winning production of Journey’s End, seen both in London and New York his other work includes Copenhagen (Sheffield), Enron (Tokyo), The Philanthropist (Broadway) and Six Degrees of Separation (Old Vic).

"Performed with a terrific spiky verve by a crack cast" - The Independent

"Terrific sense of edgy camaraderie and snappy loyalty… a pleasure to watch" - Evening Standard

"Nailing the comedy to the wall… the cast spark off each other brilliantly" - Time Out

"Lewis' punchy play… comes out with all guns blazing" - Sunday Times 

"Storms the West End in a brilliantly cast and superbly acted revival" - Whatsonstage.com

Matthew Lewis played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter film series and was recently nominated for an acting award for his role in BBC One’s The Syndicate. Laurence Fox is best known for his leading role as DS Hathaway in ITV drama Lewis and was last seen in the West End in Treats (Garrick). Arthur Darvill plays Rory Williams in Doctor Who  and his  other TV credits including He Kills Coppers and The Verdict. His last London stage appearance was in Doctor Faustus (Globe).  Jolyon Coy, currently appearing in Posh at the Duke of Yorks and soon to be seen in the BBC's Henry IV part I & II (part of The Hollow Crown series) and Lewis Reeves, who is currently filming Lee Nelson’s new TV series.

This promises to be one of the must see events of the autumn so get your Our Boys tickets today!
