Saw this National Theatre export (the 3rd following War Horse / One Man Two Guvnors) mid July at a Saturday matinee performance. The Apollo suits the play extremely well as it provides a relatively intimate venue for you to enter the mind of the lead character who is a teenage boy who finds he is different from everyone else. Mesmerising performances from the entire cast, a rivetting script, wrapped up in high production values and one of the most innovative uses of a stage / sets I have seen in quite a while. The intensity builds from the opening scene to the final act. Some challenging scenes / language, so not for younger visitors. Make sure you stay for the additional scene after the cast have taken a bow. Worth waiting for!
