Gavin Roach presents the New South Wales premiere of The Shy Manifesto by Michael Ross.
Seventeen-year-old Callum is proud to be shy and he thinks you should be too - because what this noisy, crazy world needs right now is a bit more self-restraint.
Tonight he is to address an audience of radical shy comrades and incite the meek to finally rise up and inherit the earth. But memories of the previous night’s drunken escapades at a classmate’s end-of-term party keep intruding, and threaten to upend the fragile identity he has so carefully created for himself.
A bittersweet coming-of-age comedy/drama about a shy boy who is fed up of constantly being told to come out of his shell.
"In its strongest moments, the play does well to articulate the real pain of being a teenager." - Exeunt Magazine
