Trophy Boys

COMEDY | PRIVILEGE | POWER

Written by Emmanuelle Mattana

Boys being boys.

It is the biggest night of Melbourne’s academic calendar, the Grand Finale of the Year 12 Interschool Debating Tournament, and the all-boys team from the elite St Imperium College are ready to totally annihilate their sister school – until...

Performed by a female and non-binary cast in drag, the show unfolds in real time as the boys are locked in a classroom for their one-hour prep window and forced to argue ‘that feminism has failed women’. Aspiring future PM and brainiac scholarship kid, Owen, joins soft-boy-jock, Jared, dopey lawyer’s son, Scott, and nerdy enigma, David, to come up with a case that will win them the debate – and save them from getting cancelled.

Trophy Boys is a queer, black comedy and drag extravaganza about power, privilege, and high school debating.
