From multiple critically acclaimed and sell-out runs in London and Edinburgh comes a dark, beautiful tale of one boy’s awakening to the harsh realities of adulthood. Play with him, and take his hand as you lead him back to Neverland. A truly intimate experience from the inimitable Belt Up Theatre.
The Boy James allows its visitors the password to a strictly secret world; a safe haven where they can while away their time and get in touch with their inner child. Let your adult sensibilities go, join in the games and forget the cruel world on the other side of the window. But as the tick tock of the clock goes on, you too will have to face the inevitable voyage.
After a run at Southwark Playhouse in January 2011, The Boy James is returning to a different location for three weeks as part of Southwark Playhouse’s ‘Out and About’ programme. The show will make a new home above The Goldsmith, a bar and restaurant built originally as part of Southwark’s London Fire Brigade Station. As always, the company will be transforming the space into a fully formed immersive environment.
