A boy. At a bus stop. Easily missed.

“High concept yet also surprisingly human staging of a portrait of inarticulacy and isolation. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Fox is perfectly unshowy as Liam: hands in his pockets, kicking his heels, occasionally lashing out at the city... Exemplary. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Fox’s haunted eyes and subtly shifting speech patterns tell us more than the deliberate impersonality of Butler’s crafty script.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Aimlessness is distilled with alchemical concentration into poetry... A staging of beautiful complexity. ”

Jane Shilling (Telegraph)

“Astonishing... Spellbinding... Extraordinary... Perfectly captures the non-stop drive of the city... Fox is adorable... Epic. ”

Patrick Marmion (Time Out, Daily Mail)

“In a terrific professional debut, Fox slips around as cowed and eager as a whipped dog... Wares’s production reveals as it teems”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Today’s London, its squalid impersonal bustle, quite brilliantly evoked by director Wares and Buether’s ingenious set. ”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Fox captures very well Liam’s uncertainty, loneliness and hunger for meaningful human contact. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“A fascinating exercise in theatre-as-installation that nonetheless leaves us little the wiser about its central figure. ”

Matt Wolf (Arts Desk)

“A collage of voices.. Buether’s relentlessly moving travelator set cannot disguise the fact that the drama is static. ”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“It's all about monotony and often, on purpose, Boy is exactly that. ”

Ann Treneman (Times)
