warnings: Just a Boy, Standing in Front of a Girl is an adaptation of Medea and is recommended for anyone 15+.
The production contains a firearm effect, scenes depicting bullying and sexual harassment that some viewers may find disturbing. The work also includes stylized and verbal representations of murder and violence.
From the creators of The Yellow Wave and Cuckoo comes a Medea for our times.
Just a Boy, Standing in Front of a Girl is a darkly funny, tragicomic take on the legendary relationship between J and M, from teenage romance to domestic nightmare.
A savage and subversive re-imagining of events surrounding a classic text, Just a Boy is a contemporary parable of the patriarchy that shows what happens when you’re smart, strong and female.
