The smash-hit new show Boy Out The City comes to the Lyric Belfast following its run on London’s West End and a sold-out Edinburgh Fringe show.
West End star Declan Bennett (EastEnders, Taboo, Carousel, Jesus Christ Superstar) writes and stars in this electric, funny and raw autobiographical show.
Declan takes us on a journey into the messy and turbulent world of toxic masculinity, homophobia and men’s mental health; confronting his Catholic school days in Coventry, discovering the Gay scene in 90’s Soho and surviving the harsh bright lights of New York City.
From the lonely aisles of Hobbycraft to the bright lights of New York city, this is the story of a man in desperate search of identity when confronted with sudden unexpected solitude, and forced to fight the demons of his past and come face to face with the Boy Out of the City.
The show is written and performed by Declan Bennett, and co-created and directed by Nancy Sullivan.
