Just a Boy, Standing in Front of a Girl by Jane Miller
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.
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 and scenes depicting bullying and sexual harassment that some viewers may find disturbing. The work also includes stylized and verbal representations of murder and violence.
