Whatsonstage Awards – Honorable Mention

“It’s a play that should be seen: Brilliantly enjoyable, poignant and remarkably relevant” Time Out ****

“Mark the names of these young actors well: I suspect we shall be hearing more of them in years to come”. Telegraph *****

“deft and beautifully wrought” Michael Coveny, whatsonstage ****

“Fizzy political drama that reveals the undercurrents of history” Evening Standard

In the wake of the deep Conservative divide exposed by the recent vote on gay marriage, National Youth Theatre brings its hit production back to the West End after a sold out run at Soho Theatre in 2008. Tory Boyz is a bold and astute political comedy that takes us behind the scenes of the corridors of power at Westminster where saving face and avoiding scandal is the order of the day.

James Graham, author of the current NT hit This House, updates his original script to make this an even more explosive and poignant play.
