A Film by The PappyShow


World premiere coming 2022.

A film by The PappyShow

Born out of NDT Associate Company The PappyShow’s award-winning theatre show Boys, this brand new film is devised by and stars a group of young men of colour. 

Boys is a hybrid, blurring the lines between documentary, fiction and imagination. It is poetry and improvisation, it’s playtime and confessions between true friends.

It’s the playfulness and pressure of being a boy, trying to be a man.

Co-directed by Kane Husbands and Celia Willis.

Co-commissioned by New Diorama Theatre and London International Mime Festival. Supported by Arts Council England.

‘Disarmingly charming’ 
Lyn Gardner on Boys the play

The Company


The PappyShow are a playful physical and visual ensemble theatre company. Formed in January 2013 by Kane Husbands in order to provide a much-needed space for actors to train in physical theatre, we use exercise and training to devise and create work.

We believe that having a space to play, devise and fail improves us as performers and informs the way we approach our work.

Moving forwards, we will continue to offer physical training opportunities for actors and non- actors alike. Community cohesion and working together is key to the company’s ensemble ethos. / @pappy_show
