Boys Don't

Boys Don't is Papertale's most recent spoken word show, in association with Half Moon Theatre and Apples and Snakes South East, funded by Grants for the Arts, Arts Council England.

Boys Don't is about what happens to boys when they cry, and how the responses they get shape them as they grow into men. The show features (in repertory): Justin Coe, Hadiru Mahdi, Tanaka Mhishi and Steve Tasane, spoken word artists who draw on their own experiences to look at personal, social and cultural issues that affect boys' ability to express their feelings.

Conceived and directed by Rosemary Harris.

Boys Don't is now available to view online as part of the new Half Moon Theatre at Home initiative, showcasing the live-stream performance from Brighton Festival, 2018.

Since 2011 Papertale has produced the acclaimed Suitcase Trilogy of shows on migration: A Roo In My Suitcase, One Way Ticket, and Map of Me.
