Trophy Boys | Session 1 [New Tickets Added] | 11am

A4 Full 300dpi Landscape Trophy Boys Hero Image 5

Presented by Soft Tread in association with The Maybe Pile

Boys being boys.

It is the biggest night of Melbourne's academic calendar, the Grand Finale of the Year 12 Interschool Debating Tournament, and the all-boys team from the elite St Imperium College are ready to totally annihilate their sister school – until…

Performed by a female and non-binary cast in drag, the show unfolds in real time as the boys are locked in a classroom for their one-hour prep window, and forced to argue that "feminism has failed women".

This riotously funny satire looks at insecure adolescent masculinity, entitlement and the ego of Australia's next generation of politicians and powerbrokers.

Trophy Boys is on the VCE Drama & Theatre Studies Playlist for 2024.

Recommended for ages: 13+
