Lost Boys

Wed 04 - Wed 11 September 2019

Autumn 2019 | Theatre
National Youth Theatre present
LOST BOYS
by Luke Barnes
Directed by Zoe Lafferty


"These are small town gods"

A humorous and heartfelt look into the lives of the youth of one northern new town, where the weight of identity, place, and masculinity threaten everything they’ve ever known. Featuring a vibrant cast of Britain’s brightest young talent and energetic original songs by Dom Coyote, Lost Boys promises to be a gripping night at the theatre not to be missed.

Written by award-winning Formby playwright Luke Barnes, who’s 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.

★★★★ “It is youth theatre at its most mature, and most dazzling.” 
---The Guardian on NYT’s The Fall at Southwark Playhouse in 2018
