A boy. At a bus stop. Easily missed.
Liam wanders through the city, repeatedly encountering people, but continually feeling disconnected and alienated.
In this vivid and troubled story of an isolated young man, playwright Leo Butler casts a sharp eye over the city and picks someone for us to follow.
Boy received its world premiere at the Almeida Theatre, London, on 5 April 2016.
