Boys Will Be Boys By Melissa Bubnic

Some say the City is still a man’s world. In Boys Will Be Boys the players are all women.

Astrid Wentworth is ruthless. If there is a special hell for women who don’t help each other, Astrid’s got the top table reserved and a martini waiting.

But, when the young and ambitious Priya applies for a junior position on the trading floor, Astrid recognises something in her and decides to give her a go. After all, what’s gender got to do with it?

“What do you say? When someone tells you you’ve sold your soul?”

“I say it’s mine to sell. And the devil knows how to dance.”

The Bush Theatre and Headlong take over the iconic Bush Hall for an exhilarating night out featuring cabaret music and performed by an all-female cast.
