• April 2022

Weaving slick choreography and dialogue with a soundtrack of contemporary beats, this award-winning show, performed at the Barbican Centre Silk Street Theatre in April 2022, celebrates male tenderness, silliness, vulnerability and community. Joyful, electric, unscripted and occasionally raw but always tender. BOYS was created by this 10-strong company to unravel preconceptions and uncover the endless possibilities of masculinity.

The PappyShow is an ensemble theatre company that creates space for people to dance, play and celebrate their authentic voice. BOYS was the winner of the Origins Outstanding New Work Award at VAULT Festival.
