ALL BOYS follows a group of boys at an elite Catholic boys school as they are forged into the type of men that rule the world, whether they like it or not.

Long-listed for the 2023 Griffin Award and directed by Cezera Critti-Schnaars (dir. Seven Sisters, Perth Festival and WAYTCo; writ. Salted Pretzels, The Blue Room Theatre), this explosive new play explores the strange lines between violence and intimacy, victimhood and perpetration, and shines a spotlight on a world hidden in plain sight.

ALL BOYS by NIDA and VCA graduate Xavier Hazard is a story of masculinity, sexuality, and culpability – one that asks: “what do boys do when they discover they can do whatever they want?”.
