 'BOY'

Award winning HyperFusion Theatre Company and Inclusion For All present a ground-breaking theatre production 'BOY' launching in February 2016 to coincide with the celebration of LGBT History Month. An interactive theatre show that looks at bullying and identity.

BOY's story doesn't want to be told. He doesn't want to have a story. He just wants to fit in and not be different, whatever that means. But the more he tried, the worse it seems to get and he's reaching the point where.........

As bullying related to identity is at worrying high levels (as research from LGBT charities such as Stonewall prove) BOY's aim is to create safe sapces for ALL young people regardless of identity and sexuality. BOY's mission is this; to inspire change and create a deeper understanding of the nature of prejudice in all it's forms. 

A cast of 5 professional actors explore homophobic and other forms of prejudicial bullying and language with a dynamic and interactive piece, directly informed and written after focus group work with young people exploring their experiences of prejudice and bullying, ensuring themes and content are grounded in real experiences.

BOY has already gained attention on social media, in part due to the groundbreaking nature of the production which has been created to literally 'pop up' in a diverse variety of settings from schools to church halls and youth groups, to theatres to non theatre spaces. HyperFusion has made a conscious decision to not place boundaries on where it is performed in order to reach the widest possible audience.

Theatre Changing Lives.
