Produced

The Lost Boys have embarked on an exploration of produced works and are attempting to blend it with their existing methodologies and contemporary theatre practice. The Lost Boys believe that British theatre and artist development was and still remains the best in the world and wish to contribute to those successes whilst continually developing as professionals ourselves.

To do this The Lost Boys  aim to work with other artists, some more experienced, some younger to learn from each and to produce existing published works. The aim is to create a breeding ground for talent and to push individuals skills by benefitting from working with other artists and crew and breathing new life into classics and lesser known works.

See below for upcoming productions, if you wish to get involved or want further information please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Ears on a Beatle (UK Premiere) Video Promo

35 years ago John lennon Was shot. 44 years ago the FBI placed him under surveillance. Where do you draw the line between coincidence and conspiracy?

After a long legal battle, the US government published the FBI files on John Lennon through the freedom of Information Act. This play is based on those files. Two agents are assigned to the place the ‘Subject’, John Lennon under surveillance. As they proceed with their job of watching, documenting, and reporting on the life of someone else, their own lives become affected as their assignment lasts nearly 10 years until John Lennon’s death in 1980. This true chapter in American History is not simply a docu-drama but poses further questions concerning celebrity and world leader assassinations. Where do you draw the line between coincidence and conspiracy?

5 * “Ears on a beetle” last night was wonderful. The kind of show you can recommend without giving it another thought.

Matt McGuinness, Director, Furthest From The Sea

5 * Ears on a Beatle is completely different to any of the other Lost Boys productions that I have seen. But it is absolutely superb, and showcases how extremely talented and versatile these artists are. Fascinating look into a controversial topic that is rife with conspiracy theories; this play is not only entertaining, but informative and thought provoking. Top notch.

Victoria Spence

5 * We expect the Lost Boys to be madcap & irreverent. With Ears on a Beatle it’s a different approach – no crazy antics and they prove themselves to be extremely accomplished actors who have the ability to take a more traditional approach to performance whist still engaging the audience from start to finish with this excellent 2 hander. Go see, you won’t be disappointed.

5 * Thought Ears on A Beetle was top class! Funny and poignant, go see it!

Sarah Elizabeth Russell

5 * Ears on a Beatle was superb. The simple yet highly effective set and space was perfect for this production emphasizing the claustrophobic feel of the story and how it affects the characters involved.   Paul Broesmith and Ben Adwick play wonderfully off each other. They managed to strike that fine balance between tragedy and comedy that is so often sought after.  It’s exciting to see work like this in Derby and it should be something that Derby Live take in to account for future productions.            Danny Solomon

Me and Robert McKee (UK Premiere)

Billy, a writer, is reliant on teaching scriptwriting for a living and the bottle for oblivion; his sense of self-worth is teetering on the edge.

When Mac, his best friend, a banker and would-be producer, offers him a screenplay to write, the offer is not all it seems.

Anyone can write, writing is the great free market of artistic expression. There’s no exams to pass, no subs to pay, no fees, no licence. It’s open slather. Entirely self-regulatory. You can do whatever you please. Like banking.

A play for anyone who has tried to write a screenplay, or teach creative writing.
