The latest triumph from Dutch-born, Belgian-based playwright Carly Wijs, Boy is vivid, thought-provoking theatre at its best.

Based on a true story, Boy is the tale of twins who are taken into hospital to be circumcised in the 1960s. The procedure goes wrong for baby Bruce, who loses his penis.

After consulting with a renowned New Zealand-born doctor, the parents agree to raise Bruce as a girl called Brenda. Despite not knowing the truth, from a very young age Brenda senses that something is just not right...

Tackling its themes with sensitivity and a quiet intensity, this critically acclaimed play captivates not only as an exploration of gender identity and nature vs. nurture, but of parenting in an ever-changing world.
