The Boys – Gordon Graham’s challenging play.

The Boys is a profoundly disturbing play which examines both the events that lead up to an appalling climax and the aftermath; shedding light on a sadly dysfunctional family of a mother and her three sons and their girlfriends.

The Boys DLThis is a courageous play that we should be proud to call Australian It has a lot to say about a society that can accept the dogma that the very rich just seem to get richer and the poor have little hope of ever changing their life’ s path. Be brave and come and meet the Sprague family, you may be shocked but won’t be disappointed.

John Wood directs a highly talented NTC cast, led by Michael Byrne’ s power hungry Brett and Cheryl Sovechles, playing his worn down mother; the cast is completed by Amy Wilde, Craig Lindeman, Natasha Steggles, Duncan Gordon and Cherie Mackinnon.

The play was an AWGIE award winner. The film based on it won four AFI awards
