Based on the best-selling memoir by
award-winning journalist Shannon Molloy, Fourteen
is the inspirational true story of growing up gay in central Queensland,
transformed into a powerful must-see theatre production by nationally acclaimed
shake & stir theatre co. Set to a nostalgic mixtape of 90s bangers from all
your faves, from Shania Twain to The Spice Girls, Fourteen addresses the trials and tribulations of growing up with
honesty, humour, and heart.
Equal parts uplifting and heart wrenching, we
follow Shannon in a year of self-discovery set amidst a backdrop of torment,
bullying and betrayal – not just at the hands of his peers, but by the adults
who were meant to protect him. This moving coming-of-age memoir about adversity
and tragedy is also a story of resilience, hope and hilarity – thanks to the
love of a group of close-knit friends, a fiercely protective family, an
extraordinary mother and... S Club 7.
Funny, sad and true, this is a play that
will foster conversation, and save lives. - The
