I don’t wanna just like ,
Write things down because I can’t actually say them
The story starts at freshers. The play starts with a nosebleed.
Thrown together by university, three “boys” begin to realise just how difficult love is to communicate and how easy it is to misunderstand. Hookups and poets and beer mats aren't intervention enough; for them, and for as long as possible, it’s just Ro, Jam and Freddie.
Scenes with boys is a queer and gender-expansive take on miscommunication, love and the messy second adolescence that many queer people face. What are the repercussions of bullying queer kids out of their “actual” boyhood? And most resoundingly, what do we reach for when we can’t say “I love you”?
Scenes with boys is presented by Mad Jacks Theatre. Mad Jacks are a new company whose work strives to move, confront and reimagine what queer and trans modes of theatre might look like. Scenes with boys is their first original play.
