Theatre North presents Shake & Stir Theatre Co's


The year is 1999 and Shannon has a secret.

adapted by Shake & Stir Theatre Co with Shannon Molloy

Shannon Molloy is a year 9 student at an all-boys rugby-mad Catholic school in regional Queensland, with a secret that no one can ever find out. Shannon is gay.

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.

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, 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 protectivefamily, an extraordinary mother and... S Club 7.

So press play on your discman, lose yourself in a pumping 90s pop remix and take a technicoloured trip back to your teens. This is Fourteen.

★★★★★ “The perfect night at the theatre.”
“A must-see.”

This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Originally co-produced with QPAC and Brisbane Festival.
