Ella Hickson

Fast, funny, and in your face, Stagecraft Theatre’s upcoming production of “Boys” by Ella
Hickson is not to be missed.

In a flat in Edinburgh four friends face the end of their student years together. But the future, 
jobs, relationships, and certainly cleaning out the fridge, can all wait - there is always time for 
one last massive party. 

But tonight, in the heat of summer, with strikes and rioting on the streets, the noise of the 
party may not be enough to drown out the threat of the outside world. It may not be enough 
to drown out the rising tension between two friends, each refusing to face their grief over a 
recent shared tragedy. It may not be enough to drown out a boy’s fear of failure on the world 
stage. It may not be enough to drown out the nagging voice that life is not all about the next 
party, the next pill, the next beer.

Still, worth giving it a go, aye?

Party tonight on Princes Street. It’s going to be a riot.

Dates and times: Wednesday 17th to Saturday 20th September 2014 at 7.30pm, Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 September at 6.30pm, Thursday 25 to Saturday 27 September at 7.30pm
