Someone easily missed amongst the crowd.
Following last year's groundbreaking production of Game, the innovative director-designer team Sacha Wares and Miriam Buether return to the Almeida to bring this ambitious exploration of austerity-era London to life. They are joined by an award-winning creative team and an exciting young company of actors.
Written by Leo Butler, who has quietly established himself as one of the UK's most talented political playwrights, Boy is an important new play about coming of age in 21st-century London Presse : "There is compassion in the writing, as well as a vision of an unfeeling city going about its daily business." Michael Billington for The Guardian
"This is not a play that will send you home feeling good about yourself. On the contrary, its power to disturb is all the more troubling because it offers neither accusation nor redemption. You find yourself wondering about the morality of turning hopelessness into a beautifully crafted theatrical experience. But what would be a more virtuous alternative?" Jane Schilling for The Telegraph
"It’s not a great piece of drama per se but director Sacha Wares and set designer Miriam Buether make it quietly magnificent." Fiona Mountford for The Evening Standard
"Director Sacha Wares, designer Miriam Buether and movement director Liam Baugh have conjured magic and provided plenty to look at. The Almeida’s new production is the kind of thing to turn first-timers on to theatre for ever (especially at 75 minutes without interval)." Fiona Hughes for The Radio Times
