Boys Plays is a no holds barred double bill of plays - Boys Play by Jack Heifner and Extra Virgin by Howard Walters - where the doubts, bonds and consequences of male teenage friendship, infatuation and hero worship are played out with disturbing results. These psychological dramas explore the gray areas between trust and betrayal, and love, lust and friendship in a nail biting demonstration of on the edge power games between young men on the cusp of maturity.

Two different but related duologues make up the latest offering from Above The Stag, Boys Plays. Exploriong themes of hero worship and male relationships, Boys’ Play and Extra Virgin seem to be presented as two sides of a rather strangely shaped coin.
Boys’ Play focuses on the confused relationship between Tom (Alexander Pritchett) and Joe (Matt Brinkler), a pair of pubescent teens who, on a night away in a forest, reveal their teenage angst, desires and fears. The play however lacks a certain focus, always veering on the edge of revealing something pivotal to the storyline but never quite getting there.
The sci-fi ending is one step too far into the surreal, leaving no clear sense of the real point of the piece. This lack of focus and real foundation prevent Pritchett and Brinkler’s on-stage chemistry from developing into anything truly believeable.
