Overview

She meets him in an airport queue and sparks fly. Their passionate love affair takes them to marriage, a mortgage, and children – an ordinary family life. Her natural working-class wit works to her advantage, and unexpectedly she starts rising above her allotted rung on the British social ladder. The power dynamic between them shifts – imperceptible cracks become yawning gulfs – but when the house they built begins to fall, nothing prepares her for what happens next.

The innocent sounding Girls & Boys is a searing one woman show by Dennis Kelly, the celebrated wordsmith of in-yer-face classics like Osama the Hero and DNA, as well as the masterful dialogue for Tim Minchin’s Matilda. A high-wire act balancing comedy and drama which has stunned audiences in London and New York, its stellar solo role is brilliantly filled here by Justine Clarke, whose versatility has seen her adored by audiences for her work on Play School to ARIA Award-winning albums and darker, powerhouse turns in Love My Way, Tangle and Look Both Ways.

A ticking time bomb, State Theatre Company South Australia's Girls & Boys for Adelaide Festival is an engrossing, edge-of-your-seat play that shifts gears from Fleabag-like wit and mischief to harrowing shock in a matter of seconds, and it will leave you breathless.
