New Boy

New Boy $14.99

Russell Labey from William Sutcliffe

Published by AmberLane Press

3 Male 2 Female

Barry has the face of an angel

The body of a god

And the name of a plasterer

When he arrives as the new boy at school everyone's hormones start racing

And it's not just the girls who fancy him


"Russell Labey's play cleverly reworks William Sutcliffe's enormously popular novel, and his stage adaptation makes a thoroughly enjoyable evening" ~ Roger Foss, What's On

"Smart, entertaining stuff ... somewhere between Adrian Mole and Holden Caulfield" ~ The Mail on Sunday

"Adolescent desire, burgeoning sexuality, loss of virginity and cross-generational sex, all deftly handled in a cracking script" ~ The Guardian

"Compelling, fast, funny, scintillating ..." ~ 5 Stars Critics' Choice, The Scotsman

"... the play's ultimate message that we shouldn't let sex and sexuality become such a big deal is communicated more effectively than in most 'ishoo-based' pieces simply by being raised so unfussily" ~ Ian Shuttleworth, Financial Times
