The King’s Head Theatre have announced details of BOYS! BOYS! BOYS!, the summer season of writer/performer plays running in rep from 2 August to 10 September.
Whilst thematically each play centres on male experience, each one is produced or directed by women, and the majority are performed or produced by LGBTQ+ creatives.
Producer Sofi Berenger said, “When we started to talk about putting the Boys! Boys! Boys! Season together, it was important that the shows were reflective of the way King’s Head Theatre works. Womxn in key creative roles are still hugely underrepresented in the work that gets put on and this is certainly true in the producing and directing fields. As well as producing my own play independently, I have an absolute powerhouse of other female producers and creatives presenting work this season who I am extremely privileged to work alongside – on this season and future productions we have planned at Kings Head Theatre.”
The plays include: Bi Bi Baileigh by Isaac Verrall, Mediocre White Male, Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope, Jarman and Brawn
Mark Ravenhill said, “This season features some shows which have had many previous runs but with companies excited to perform to new audiences, others are new and coming to London for the first time. Some are celebrating queer icons and exploring LGBTQ+ history, others are looking at toxic masculinity and mental health. But all are exploring the male experience and many different representations of masculinity.”
