About New Boy
New Boy, from the novel by William Sutcliffe
Adapted & Directed by Russell Labey.
Presented by Jason Haigh-Ellery and Stuart Piper
Mark starts sixth form knowing this is his last chance to impress — to be more popular, more obnoxious, the best informed about gynaecology. The mesmerizingly good looking Barry seems to be having trouble making friends. Everyone is afraid of him. He could be the perfect ally in Mark’s mission to enhance his social status and finally get a shag.
'Adolescent desire, burgeoning sexuality, loss of virginity and cross-generational sex all deftly handled in a cracking script' was how the Guardian described Russell Labey’s Edinburgh Festival hit play, which also received 5-stars from The Scotsman. Nicholas Hoult stars in the first West-End run for this adaptation of William Sutcliffe’s best selling novel.
Cast: Nicholas Hoult (Skins, About a Boy), Ciara Janson (Hollyoaks), comedienne Mel Giedroyc (Mel & Sue), Gregg Lowe and Phil Matthews.
