23 September – 29 November
Tory Boyz is a bold and astute political comedy that takes us behind the scenes of the corridors of power at Westminster where saving face and avoiding scandal is the order of the day. James Graham – author of the current NT hit This House – updates his original script to make this an even more explosive and poignant play.
‘Graham goes at it with fizz, flair and no small degree of humour. A top-notch young cast tear into this at full pelt, in a precision-drilled production.’ **** Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard
‘You expect raw talent and commitment from the NYT, but the depth and focus on show here are much rarer qualities in such a youthful production.’ **** Time Out - Show of the Week
James Graham said:
"Tory Boyz, which I wrote five years ago, was my initiation into writing a Westminster saga with a huge cast that really pushed, challenged and provoked me as a young writer, for which I am so grateful. I see within it all the seeds of my future obsessions, particularly my recent national play This House. The reaction to it first time around surprised and delighted us all, and I can't wait to throw myself back into it again."
