The Boy Who Cried premieres at the Hope Theatre
Rough Haired Pointer have announced their next production to be staged at The Hope Theatre in Angel, North London. The Boy Who Cried is a new play written by Matt Osman, which will have a run commencing 4 March 2014, officially opening on 7 March and concluding on 29 March 2014.
A central moon dominates an almost-the-same, nearly familiar London.
A young girl has gone missing last night, believed murdered. Everyone knows werewolves lurk behind every front door. Naturally, it is the duty of the State to have them hunted down, tortured and then terminated. There are no police here, only ‘Protection’ Officers. Sam Elvin has been locked in his mental turmoil for years, and his room for days. Apart from last night - when he was found naked and crazed on the Embankment.
What choice does his anxious mother have but to call in the services of the Protection Officer?
The mediaeval legend of the werewolf, the modern malady of depression, and a young man’s urge to rebel, meet in this new play.
The cast of The Boy Who Cried includes Jake Curran, Hamish Macdougall, Jordan Mallory-Skinner, Shelley Lang and Loz Keystone.
It will be directed by Mary Franklin, with sets designed by Chris Hone, lighting by Seth Rook Williams. Jessica Stewart produces on behalf of Rough Haired Pointer.
