“These are the small town gods”
A humorous and heartfelt play by award-winning Formby playwright Luke Barnes, featuring energetic original songs by long-time Kneehigh collaborator Dom Coyote and Britain’s best young talent from the National Youth Theatre. Playfully directed by Zoe Lafferty, Lost Boys is a play for everyone about growing up in a new northern town, exploring how where you’re from and gender identity affects who you are, who you become and your mental health.
Written by award-winning Formby playwright Luke Barnes, whose recent plays include The Jumper Factory (Young Vic) and All We Ever Wanted Was Everything (Bush Theatre and various venues) and acting credits include HBO’s Game of Thrones. Director Zoe Lafferty (The Host, Queens of Syria) was recently named one of Vogue’s Major Players of British Theatre.
This new commission for National Youth Theatre comes to Liverpool for the first time following a workshop production in Skelmersdale in September 2018.
