Reality:Check Productions Presents on stage The Boys by Michael Harnett Directed by Tracy Ryan Produced by Killian Coyle Adapted for stage by Michael Harnett "... It’s very sharp, very humorous and lyrical and very well written. Definitely worth checking out.” – Arena, RTE Radio 1 “A charming and sensitive story. A particularly well written and finely observed account of a Dublin working-class boyhood.” – The Irish Times.

Following a sell out 2 week run in Novemeber 2015 at Smock Alley Boys’ School, Michael Harnett’s novel turn play returns – back by popular demand!Set in Drumcondra and adapted from the novel of the same name, The Boys is the story of a group of teenage boys coming to terms with the time and place in which they find themselves.It’s the summer of 1968 and The Boys are ready for the world – at least some of them are. What can stop them now? But before the Summer holidays are over, life will have utterly changed. Nothing will be the same again.4 Actors take on the roles of over 25 characters, which gives the piece a relentless comedic pace, with moments of bittersweet resolve as we see the characters move from their tight knit young world of The Boys into manhood.Full of inventive energy and fun, The Boys is both a hilarious story of growing up and a moving portrayal of moving on. Directed by Tracy Ryan, the action is frenetically paced where the scene and character changes happen in a flash. This show contains strong language and is recommended for audiences of 14+
