  • This May and June, Merrigong Theatre Company will present a brand new Australian work inspired by a shocking chapter in recent Australian history. Examining the heinous murders of dozens of gay men in Sydney in the 1980s. Lost Boys is a fierce and compelling new play by award-winning Australian playwright Lachlan Philpott (Silent Disco, The Trouble with Harry) specially commissioned and developed by Merrigong Theatre Company.

    Cy and Robert Murphy are teenagers living a life of sun and saltwater, but as the sun sets, a malevolent culture of homophobia and violence surfaces, with consequences that ripple across generations.

    Influenced by real events, including the murder of Wollongong newsreader Ross Warren, Lost Boys is told through the eyes of three generations of the Murphy family and rips into a dark part of our male-dominated culture, asking how perpetrators of violent crimes live with their unspeakable pasts.

    Commemorating lives lost, this deeply affecting and potent new work forces audiences to examine secrets held for decades, and prejudices still held today. This is vital and unflinching work from a compelling voice in Australian theatre.
